Quick Thinking

This is going to be a QUICK post so I can get this creation onto the current challenge before it expires in less than an hour.  The challenge is over at CRAFT A SCENE (#4 Silhouettes) and I JUST stumbled upon them.  I learned about Stampscapes a couple of years ago at a local stamping store that is run by a retired art teacher and in fact have met Kevin (Mr. Stampscapes) at Adventures in Stamping in Akron, OH two years ago.  I really need to get these stamps out and play more ... I love the scenes that can be created.

OKAY ... here we go ...

I will come back and add all the details momentarily ... don't want to miss the deadline!

Shew!  okay .. I'm back ... just made it!!  As I was saying, I took a Stampscapes class locally about 3-4 years ago and fell in love with the results.  But like everything else, I've moved into various other forms of paper & ink and my Stampscapes have been neglected for awhile now!  This awesome challenge blog is just what I need to get my 'create a scene' juices flowing again.  I guess I didn't do too bad of a job considering that in the last 30 minutes I have come up with the idea, created the card from start to finish, photographed it and got it on the blog for viewing / commenting!  Just imagine what I might do when I can TAKE MY TIME!  LOL ...

Here is the recipe for this card:
Papers:  Black cs, white cs
Inks:  Momento 'bamboo shoots', SU Pacific Point, Soft Sky & Chocolate Chip, Versafine Black
Stamps:  Stampscapes 'Pine Row - 150E' ... 'Tree Trunk Trio - 088F ...'Cattails lg. - 017D' ... 'Leafy Branch - 277F', Rubber Stamps of America (water), Ala Art (sky), The Stamp Pad Co. (moose), Impression Obsession (sentiment), the Geese are also Stampscapes but can't find the number.
Accessories:  Michaels brown gingham ribbon, EK Success tag punch, SU suede marker for ground line
