So I thought that the Life Verse I have used is very apt for her. I started with a piece of A5 Theuva Card and I used Memento - Olive Grove to stamp this into position first. I used torn copy paper, makeup sponge and once again Olive Grove ink to create the landscape. I then stamped the Fawn and the Deerscape in Archival - Ginger. I went back to the Olive Grove for the rest of the stamping
I then used a collection of Remountable Leaves to create plants and foliage. I also used a Pointilism stamp to give a bit more texture to the foreground and the brows of the hills. I added some trees in the background using a bit of the Pine Forest stamp and also a single small Spruce Tree with Northern Pine Ink with a little bit of secondary stamping going on too.
Close-up of the 'shrubbery' created using the Leaves set and the Pointilism Stamp.
I used the large Birch Leave and Memento - Northern Pine to stamp around the top and sides. But before doing that I took one of my Clarity Stencil Brushes, Whispers - Sunshine and circled in a setting sun. I then used a Big n Juicy - Soothing Sunset ink pad, covered my hills with copy paper and took the stencil brush along the length of the art work starting with the yellow edge. I changed brushes and added some of the darker pink and then again I used the darkest shade almost a purple. I finished the sky by adding in a bit more darkness with Memento - Paris Dusk. I then added the Birds in flight.
At this point I felt that the foreground was a bit too light for a setting sun so I decided to add a bit more shading using a large Clarity Stencil Brush and Memento - Northern Pine and then brushed this lightly all over the greenery until I was satisfied.
I trimmed my artwork and edged it with a black Sharpie pen. This will be mounted onto a bright white background and then framed. Now I had better get back into my craft room and tidy up my mess!
I hope you like it. I have decided that this will also be my entry for Clarity Stamp Challenge for this month, which just happens to be Nature...well fancy that!
Happy Crafting everyone!
