Craft a Scene

I had my attention brought to a new challenge blog this week - thank you Fliss, it's called Craft a Scene.
I love creating scenes and have made many both with my brayer and sponging. Today's card was sponged using ripped copy paper, a post-it-note and one of my own design stamps.
I used Stampin' Up inks - Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Garden Green and Handsome Hunter - here it is



I'm really pleased with how this turned out especially as it is a one layer card - I went ahead and inked and stamped directly onto my card base, very risky I know!!
The whole scene has been outlined by hand with a black fine liner pen.
The challenge this time is 'Anything Goes' and I'm so looking forward to what the design team come up with for us in the coming weeks - you should hop over and take a look - the sample cards are superb.
I'm off now - my craft room looks like a bombs hit it and I really don't feel like tidying it at the moment and I am banned from crafting in the living room as I make too much mess ..............will have to take over the dinning room instead mwahahahaha!!

  1. So glad you decided to join in Jacqueline and your card is a real stunner. The inky effects are just beautiful and the whole card is so serene.
    A word of warning about the dining room as this is where I have to craft not having a craft room. I have to clear it up every evening so we can eat which can be a real nuisance!
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  2. WOW! This is a stunning scene and I love the shadows of the trees on the ground. Well done for being brave enough to stamp straight to the card. I wouldn't have been!!

  8. Just love the card Jacqueline. It is wonderful to be able to do all the stamping and designing right on the base card. Your scene really has nice depth and I think I have climbed that mountain before. Haha!
