Last month the theme for our Stampscapes Yahoo group was Reflections.
I chose this cute mini Magnolia to feature. I bought several of the mini designs just to use with my Stampscapes images. I created the scene during our Stampscapes retreat so I don't have break out photos. I'll do my best to describe my process.
I stamped him on cardstock and masked him. Next I stamped the peer. I made it into a dock by drawing in dock posts. :o) To create his reflection in the water, I stamped the little fisherman on the smooth side of the plastic that came with my stamp positioner. Since it is clear, it was easy to line it up with his feet and press lightly. Next I masked the dock and stamped in the rest of the scene. I colored last, leaving highlights in the water and on the deck. I also was careful not to color his reflection too bright.
During our retreat we had the opporunty to get feedback from an Art Teacher, Grechen! She gave me some great advice to deepen my colors in areas, like where the water is deeper. The last three years, my roomies and I have been staying at Grechen's house and we didn't know she was an Art teacher. We were so excited to learn this hidden talent about her and ask for her advice.
When my little scene was all finished, I shipped it off to my stampin' sister Trish D in Australia. I told her, the little fisherman was thinking "I hope Trish likes this card." :o) She did!
Had a wonderful time last week in Savanna at the Stampscapes Retreat!! I spent a full creative, encouraging, fun-filled week with some of my Stampscapes Yahoo Group Sisters stamping away - coloring, giggling, painting, masking, air brushing, giggling, eating, fixing boo boos, and more coloring. What a wonderful way to spend a week!
I used a variety of stamps and coloring techniques - too many too track. :o)
