Make a Scene at Country View

Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Make a Scene

I started off with a piece of white card,tore some tissue paper and applied some Panpastel in pale blue

After masking off the moon add more colour deepening with each layer. Seal this with some cheap
hairspray before adding your stamps

I have now inked up some stampscape stamps  

Finished off with some more trees, birds and sentiment...also some shading

A little tip...  when using any scenic type of stamps.

I always stamp all my scenic type stamps onto some acetate using stazon, you can then use these to help create your scene. The F is to tell me the front ...I use this for birds people and everything scenic and just keep them in a container for when I want to compose a scene.
