Good Morning Chicks!
My mojo is slowly coming back and I finally had the mindset to work on another Stampscapes scene for the Craft A Scene Blog Challenge for March which is moonlight.
This scene was very easy to accomplish. I started with four Stampscape stamps (listed below) and then decided to do a monochromatic scene. It turned out pretty kewl ... I think! Also, I used a 5X7 size for the card.
To colour the scene I started with a Tim Holtz blending tool with the foam. Using Memento London Fog I started colouring lightly from the edge moving inward. It probably took abour five passes around the whole card to get the look I wanted. Then, using Distress Ink called Black Soot I used the blending tool and once again worked the ink lightly from the outside edge inward until it was dark enough.
I decided that the scene needed a tiny bit of something to add interest so picked up my Colorbox Stylus that had Adirondack Lemonade on the foam pad and without reinking it I tapped a bit of colour into the moon. Here is a closer look at the photo so you can see what I've done!
Once I mounted the scene it was easy to see that it would look great mounted black on white. A little bit of scoring around the outside edge and it was done! After I finished the card I was thinking that a funny sentiment for the inside, that would go with the outside would be... Congratulations on your children moving out! haha!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
