Scenic Season

Good Morning Everyone!

It’s time for another sketch challenge form Stamping 411 

I hope you’ll take the time to visit and play along. This weeks sketch is:

ssc116

…..and my interpretation is:

Scenic Season 007

For this card I am showcasing our beautiful “Scenic Season” Stamp Set. To stamp only one tree I used markers to color in the image I wanted. Once you have done that you do what they call huffing on it (a  little heavy breathing) to remoisten the ink, then you stamp. So whenever you want part of an image done you can do this or if you want several colors on a stamp and wondered, how did they do that? You would color with markers and Huff.

Handsome Hunter Foldover Piece: 5 1/2” x * 1/2” I ran the front of it through my Big Shot with a Texturz Plate.

White strip is cut to; 2”x4 #/4” and stamped the Merry Chrismas from the (Cardinal Christmas Set and the corner Greenery and Poinsettia (done with markers) from the Patterned Pines Hostess Set from our New Mini Catalog.

My red piece is cut to 2 1/4”x 3 1/2” and my white image piece is cut to 2 1/8”x 3 1/8”.

I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the ground to resemble fresh sparkling fallen snow. I think it did the trick.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit today and hope you’ll come back often. Please go on over to Stamping 411 and see what everyone’s been up to and hopefully play along.

…and as always …

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
