Ahhhhhh warmth! My projects have been a little cold of late. It’s time for some warmth and a little dabbled light.
Let’s get going. . . . . . .
|Stamps: Stampin’ Up Trees Three, Wanted, Hugs & Wishes, Simply Circles|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Basic Black and Groovy Guava|
|Ink: Stampin’ Up Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Basic Black, Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose|
|Accessories: Brayer, Black Marker, Stamp-a-ma-jig, 1 3/8 circle punch and post it notes|
Started out by punching a 1 3/8″ circle from the sticky part of a Post It Note and put it on my Whisper White card stock to use as a mask for the sun.
Brayered on Pretty in Pink ink over top 2/3rds of the card stock.
Brayered on Groovy Guava ink, but did not cover the Pretty in Pink ink all the way. Working towards a graduation in color here.
Brayered on Regal Rose ink at the top of the card stock, but did not cover the Groovy Guava ink completely. We now have a nice graduation in color.
Covered the sky area with Post it notes to mask it. Be sure the post it notes are straight. You don’t want your horizon to go up hill, lol.
Brayer on Soft Sky ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Sponge on Groovy Gauva ink right at the edge of the post it notes. I use a rubbing motion for this so I don’t get speckles.
I also swiped a little Groovy Gauva ink across the Soft Sky ink, very lightly with my sponge.
Removed all of the masks and swiped some Groovy Guava ink over the Sun to tone it down a little.
Stamped Trees with Basic Black ink. Sorry, this Stampin’ Up Trees Three set is retired, but I love it and will never give it up until someone comes out with something comparable.
Stamped leaves on trees with Basic Black ink.
Sponged Basic Black ink on for ground. I did use a pouncing motion with the sponge for the very top of the ground to simulate grasses in the light.
Stamped horse with Basic Black ink.
Colored Horse in with a black marker.
I had some stray leaves stamped, so I drew in a couple of branches with a black marker so the leaves would make more sense in the scene.
I also drew in a couple of grasses at the base of the trees with the black marker.
Here I took a chance and stamped some small circles with Groovy Gauva and Pretty in Pink inks on and around the trees to simulate dabbled light. I kinda like it. It gives a little more life to the scene.
Stamped sentiment with Basic Black ink, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement on the Groovy Guava layer.
Assembled card and here it is finished!
Hoped you enjoyed this tutorial and give it a try.
May your day be filled with warmth and sunshine.
Until tomorrow. . . . . . . . . . .. .
