My latest make is an Anniversary card and it fits in well with the April challenge at Craft a Scene Hills and Mountains. Also a few other challenges I have listed below and with some hints in italics as you read on.
Stamps used are Sheena Douglass from the range A Little Bit Sketchy, this has to be one of my favourites from that range as I love the little boats, also this scene reminds me of the new beginnings of Summer, with hopefully those lazy hazy crazy days of summer (song by Nat King Cole) to follow.
I have used 2 stamps and placed them with enough space to form a Lake. Stamped in Archival Ink coffee and water coloured with distress inks which I mixed together in some cases making my own shades, I've listed them all below. The sky I embossed with a cloud embossing folder which I had in my stash, I like the textured effect this gave. Finished scene was mounted onto cream card and then dark brown.
