The new Lavinia challenge has started and the challenge for July is
The good thing about challenges is that they can take you out of your comfort zone and make you try something different from your usual style. I have to say that I haven't created a landscape for quite a while but boy did I enjoy creating this card, I won't leave it so long next time.
I got so carried away inking and stamping, I hope I don't forget to list any of the beautiful stamps that helped me create this scene. I started by ripping my paper to create my mask before inking my sunrise/sunset. (I just couldn't make up my mind which it was.) I then inked my hills with a selection of greens before stamping Creeping Vine, I like to make my scenes look as if I'm viewing them from under trees. Keeping my mask in place I stamped Fir tree repeatedly at different heights, removed my mask then stamped a fabulous tree from Tree Scene. I then stamped lots of Meadow Grass. I stamped the Pheasant, masking and stamping again to add another rung to the fence. I then stamped the Midnight Meandering bunnies
and finally my cute little Snail. I added some white gel pen to add a glint of sun to my stamping.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Addicted to stamps 151, Summer,
