It's time for our new challenge over at Stamping Sensations. The theme this month is 'Forest Friends' and what fun I've had making this card:
I love my 'Green Man' stamp from Make Your Mark in York but I don't get much chance to use it really, so this was a great opportunity. I started by stamping him with Impress Olive Green and then water colouring him before over stamping the image with Distress Walnut stain. Next, I used a Clarity mask to create more interest in the background. I created the hills before going on to colour the sky. I stamped the rabbits directly onto the card and the rest of the animals were stamped, coloured and then fussy cut. I think this gives them a little more dimension and I could place them where I wanted.
The trees and branches are stamps by Inkylicious and the animals came free with a craft magazine that I bought last year. I really love these animals, especially the deer.
Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x
