This month's StampscapesII Challenge is "Barnscape." This scene features Kevin's large barn from his newest release and some lovely poppies from SweetnSassy. The scene was inspired by my swap partner, as she has created scenes with this style of having a large image in the foreground. I was excited to get Barb G as my swap partner - and a little nervous. Her designs and coloring are always fabulous! She's been published in RubberStampMadness several times. Barb is also the one who introduced me to Encaustic painting. I was thinking I have to take my time on my design to make sure Barb is proud of me.
I stamped the poppies first and masked them, using a low tack tape for larger open areas. I didn't bother to mask the smaller areas as they have a design in them. If I did mask the smaller areas, I would use a liquid frisket mask - another great tip that Barb taught me!
Then, it was time for coloring!! I used Copic Markers. To make the barn look warn, after I colored it, I used the 0 marker to pull out some color.
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
