The weather is terrible so I headed to my favourite 'girls only' room and finished off what I had started last night!
This Stampscape is of my retirement home and property. I have a feeling that the house will be slightly larger than shown because I love old 'stuff.' I can hear the birds chirping in the trees as I type this out. Wonder if I'll have internet way out there??!!
I played around with the new cabin stamp I bought last week. It looked funny with mountains in the background so I toyed around with living on the prairies. The sedge filler stamp really helped fill in the voids here and there and though the fences don't really meet well... it looks old and worn out like me.
The colours I used for this were Adirondack Ink Pads in Pool, Terra Cotta, Willow, Meadow, Citrus, Black and from the Dirstress Ink Pads were Cracked Olive and Frayed Burlap. This scene is far from perfect!! If you look hard in the upper left corner, the ink ran when I sprayed the scene with glossy varnish! I didn't even notice that had happened until I was almost finished mounting everything so decided... to go ahead anyway! If I can't cover it up then I'll do another one. Should I scrap this one then I'll play around with white highlights.
I'm not sure why but, the ribbon took on a brassy hue for the camera when in fact it's a beautiful tan.
Thanks for looking and hope you like it!
