There is something so serene and beautiful about the woods - the sound of scurrying critters and the trickle of water. While walking in the woods there is such a sense of freedom and no one is there to judge you. I have envisioned a steam in the woods for a while now and finally got the chance to make this Stampscapes card.
On a piece of glossy white paper I stamped the waterside bluff left & right in StazOn Green then stamped the trees in StazOn Timber Brown. The trunks were colored with Early Espresso and ColorBox Chalk Dark Brown. Next, I colored the rocks with Basic Gray & Distress Forest Moss.
The grass was sponged in Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Garden Green and Distress Forest Moss. I stamped some tall grass in Always Artichoke.
Water was colored in Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Marina Mist, Bermuda Bay, and Night of Navy. I then added a tiny bit of Creamy Caramel and Kiwi Kiss. It is hard to believe I used so many colors, but when it comes to blending I like to start with a light color palette and work from there. The sky was done in Bashful Blue. Angel Wings Shimmerz Paint was added to the water.
The scene was adhered to a piece of Early Espresso and mounted to a light green card.
Wishing you a peaceful and relaxing weekend!
