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:
