Good Afternoon Girls!
It's blowing a southeaster with horizontal rain today so thought I'd play in my room after the chores were done! (Didn't get them all done because I'm solar powered and it's rather dark with all the heavy clouds)
I've had Ranger Perfect Pearls in my drawer for a while and finally thought up a use for them! I didn't want to be like other Stampscape artists using the pine stamped multiple times and fades into the background. So once again I thought outside the box and this is what I ended up with!
I used the small lakeside cove stamps and didn't put the pearls on until I was finished stamping. I thought doing it that way I'd get a crisper image using the perfect medium.
The tops of the trees and the water are done with the pearl finish to simulate moonlight kissing the tree tops and playing on the water. The rocks were done in gold and the tree bottoms were coloured with copper. I thought the bronze was too dark to use on black.
Once it was all dusted off I added some stars with a Jelly Roll star pen along with a few more ripple kisses in the water. Stars were added last and if you look closely you'll see a couple of constellations!
The scene was layered on gold shimmery paper and my Martha Stewart photo corner punch finished it off (Hmm I think they are now my signature on every Stampscapes piece!)
The dream stamp was from 'G' and stamped with Brilliance white and then embossed with Stampendous Pearl.
A bow with generic ribbon was made and topped off with a real jewel... just kidding! The background cardstock is quite a deep brown but I tried to use the dining room light to make the Perfect Pearls shine and ended up making the background look lighter with my fantabulistic photography skills!
Hope you like it!
