Project - Follow the River
posted 02/20/13 at 09:04 AM
This is my second scene for Craft a Scene's February theme, lighthouses. I wanted to do a lighthouse scene, without really including the sea and I was happy to ink up some of the new Stampscapes stamps. All the stamping, except the birds, was done with Archival Jet Black, starting with the new Rocky Waterside stamps. They are awesome and can be used to build many different scenes. I used a a torn scrap paper as a mask when stamping the lighthouse, since I wanted it to be behind the grassy hill. The scene was coloured with dye inks applied with a Colorbox Stylus Tool. I left the sky and a large part of the river pretty light.
The birds were stamped twice with Denim ink to add some life to the scene. Some highlights were added with a white gel pen and just a little bit of mistiness with white pigment ink. TFL!
