Good Evening Friends!
I started this card last night but wasn't sure how to frame the scene so left it until today. This layout should fit into the sketch challenge at The Outlawz!
Once again I've used my Speedball brayer and another Ranger Big and Juicy ink pad that I bought a while ago. When I first tried this pad I was new to brayering and using deep colours so after my horrendous first try I put it away for a while. This time I think I hit the nail on the head!
When brayering this scene I used three colours on the top half and then turned the paper around and used the same three on the lower half. Everything was just toooo balanced so I cut off some of the top when I finished the scene.
To get the cabin at the right spot I used my clear block that has white lines on it as guides. I lined up the water line to the white line and then was able to stamp right in the middle where the blues meet. Just prior to stamping I wondered how embossing the images would turn out and voila! Not too shabby! So after stamping in black I used a very fine embossing powder in clear. The trees and finally the geese were stamped and embossed as well. Here's a closer look for you..
Lastly I used my Jellyroll Star pen in platinum to highlight the cabin windows, water and trees where the moonlight would hit. This made them stand out a little bit more.
Once everything was done I sprayed the scene with Krylon Acrylic crystal clear spray to keep the colours from fading.
