Double D Challenge - Pine Trees and/or Pine Cones
It's time once again for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog and, it's another fun theme chosen by Diane ... also check out the amazing mood board she has designed to inspire you!
Our theme is: PINE TREES AND/OR PINE CONES
This was a fun theme for me as it gave me a chance to ink up my Stampscapes Stamps once again. I love these stamps and don't use them nearly enough. They are fabulous for creating a scene as I have done today! Here's the mood board Diane has created for our inspiration . . .
As you will see, the image on the bottom left of the mood board is what caught my attention and as I said ... these Stampscapes stamps worked perfectly for my card today. Here ya go ... what do you think?
I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to create my background ... the two shades of blue basically before stamping my scenery stamps. Then using the Picket Fence Studio blending brushes, I added extra color once my scene was in place. I also used a light brown Spectrum Noir alcohol marker on the rocks.
If you've never used these stamps and like what you see, you really should check out their website and watch him do a few tutorials. He does a lot of 'thinking while he's talking' but he's an amazing artist and has thought through everything you'd need to create some amazing scenes.
My stamps are all at least 8-10 years old so are mostly all wood block mounted. But, over the years, he has created a lot of new stamps and they are now available mounted or unmounted.
