Any scene goes at craft-a-scene

Afternoon all! I hope you're well and happy and managing to avoid the dreadful weather we've been having - my heart goes out to you if you've been affected by the flooding - I do hope that things get back to normal for you soon.

Today sees the start of the new challenge over at Craft a scene - the theme this month is very open - any scene goes. When creating your scene you should try to use more than one stamp! For my card I've used a number of stamps from the set released recently by Sheena Douglass. I also used the ombre technique from last months craft stamper magazine to create the background.




To create the ombre I used faded jeans, tumbled glass and peacock feathers distress inks - then i stamped the silhouette images in black sometimes adding second generation ink to give a little depth. Then I added the bubbles in peacock feathers. You can see what my teamies have done and enter the challenge yourselves here.
