I'm starting the new week with a scenic card made using Calm Waters (40-693) cling stamp by Penny Black. Penny Black released some gorgeous scenic stamp designs recently. Jill Foster makes stunning cards using the scenic cling stamps and I'm always in awe of her creations. After watching some of her video tutorials I pulled out Calm Waters (40-693) set and made this card :) !
I started off by stamping the scene on a alcohol ink cardstock using Memento inks. I used Memento Dew Drop ink pads to ink up the scene partially in different colors. I then colored the image using alcohol inks which was diluted with rubbing alcohol. I used a small brush to add colors on the panel.
After the panel was completely dry I gold heat embossed the boats and the bottom parts of the bush and the trees. I then cut a circle using one of the Stitched Circles (51-551) die set. To add the sentiment I stamped the scene on a white cardbase in the same colors and stamped the sentiment from Destination Sentiments (30-590) set in black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it. Lastly I foam mounted the colored panel on the cardbase.
It's not that gorgeous like Jill's cards but I'm happy I gave this a try! Hope you liked looking my card!
I'm entering this to Simon Says Stamp: Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!
Have a wonderful week!
