There's a challenge on at present over at chocolatebaroquechallenge where you have the following inspirational photo to use plus the colour scheme:
I decided I would like to enter and this is the card I came up with:
The majority of the stamps are from the Briar-Rose-Butterflystamp-sheet but the corner and the sentiment are from the Pretty-Poppies-stamp-sheet set.
I started off by stamped the main image in black archival then painted it using distress inks (rusty hinge, tumbled glass, faded jeans and frayed burlap) Then I masked the image off (not an easy task) and created the background using sailboat blue adirondack for the sky (applied using a stencil brush) - I masked off the hills and moon too). Next I used the same technique for the hills but this time i used the rusty hinge again. Finally I stamped the extra vegetation in and cut and matted and layered. The side piece was done last of all.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Thats all for today! I do hope you are well and happy! Thanks for dropping by!
