Hi all. I went to a craft fair recently and spotted some Stampscapes stamps and couldn't resist this Nature No. 6 set including the tree which I have used here repeat stamped to build the scene. I also bought the Ducks in Flight, the larger size stamp, as I thought it went well with the other set and both being used for the first time. I did see the tree used in a similar way online and as I needed a card which was fairly quick to make I thought this fitted the bill.
I cut a 5" square piece of white card and inked the tree stamp with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and added the trees and made them shorter as though on a slope, and then I filled in with some second generation ones, and I heat embossed them with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then inked around them leaving a lighter space to the righthand side using Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover Distress Inks blended with a brush making the edges darker and I then added the hills bottom right using a set of acrylic masks by Sweet Poppy Stencils, also bought at the craft fair, and finished with the sentiment and the flying ducks also using the Nocturne ink and Clear Gloss EP.
I finished by mounting it on to a piece of black card and attached it to the 6" square card.
Thank you for joining me here today and I hope you visit me here again soon.
