A restful retreat
This card did not make the class "cut" but would work as a "man" card so it made the blog instead. I used a different type of paper (Stardream) and the scene turned out kind of misty when I didn't even add mist!!
I began the scene by stamping the cabin and pines and rocks with Coffee ink on the Stardream text weight paper. I used my Stylus wand and added a bunch of inks (see below) to add some extra drama I added some Red Pepper streaks across the sky. The Stardream paper is great for that as it seems more slippery than the Glossy Cardstock (go figure!). When I was happy with my colors. I stamped the Oak Branch and Bullrushes around the edges of the card in black ink. I then added some stars in the sky and highlights with my Ranger white gel pen.
Hope this provides you with inspiration!
