This scene was inspired by my Stampin' Brother, Ken. Ken teaches scenic stamping in the AZ area and recently posted a wonderful, dramatic scene at our StampscapesII Yahoo Group using this Beeswax lake image and Stampscapes images. I was inspired by the way he created such lovely blues in his sky and lake. So I tried!
You can find Ken's art work, tutorials, workshop information, and his DVD at Stampscapes.

- Here's the order I stamped in, using a paper towel to mask when needed: (1) the boats and dock image (2) lake (3) grass (4) barns (5) mountains (6) filled in with more grass (7) sky.
- After the ink was COMPLETELY dry, I added color. I used markers for detail coloring. In Ken's scene, he made his roof tops pop with color. I did too.
- I used the stylus for the grass, mountains, sky and water. I built the rich color with a few shades and added a splash of purple. Ken taught me about the splash of purple when I met him at my first Stampscapes retreat.
- Lastly, added branches around the scene and signed my name. :o)
