How about a trad stamping scene
using Jayne’s wonderful Winter Scene stamps?
Let’s use the coated Claritycard, A5.
Run lowtack tape around the edges for a frame
and add a large moon mask.
and roll the sky into place.
Add some more Blue Chase Artistry ink to your blending mat
and ink up the stamp directly from the mat.
This will give you a more subtle image. Good idea,
especially when working with a new ink pad.
Stamp the scene to the bottom.
Clean the brayer, add Old parchment
and roll up from the bottom to meet the blue.
Here, I have already removed the moon mask and the masking tape,
and gone round the outside with a black Micron pen!
Oh! And I’ve even added 2 overhead cables!
Draw the little birds on the wire,
and stamp in Peace at Christmas with a Black Adirondack
Using a ruler, draw a second outer line with the Micron pen
and then dash around all four sides.
Infill every other box in the frame.
Colour in the gate with a promarker,
add a little glitter to the trees and bushes.
I coloured in the trees etc with a Wink of Stellar
and then sprinkled Glamour Dust over the wet ink.
The funky border really gives it a lift.
I really must make a list of things to do
before the kids arrive from the States at the weekend!
