This month's theme for the StampscapesII yahoo group challenge is paths/ bridges. For my inspiration, I used a photo I found on the internet. I googled "pathways" and several images came up. One photo jumped out at me that had beautiful colors in the sky.
I placed my images low to allow more room in the sky. I picked out my Stampscapes images - 145F, 240B, 278F, 296C, 302A. Next, I stamped the same scene in two colors schemes. 99% of the time I stamp my scene in black. My partner this month is a very creative woman that I have learned several great techniques from - Barb G. She's had many pieces published in RubberStampMadness. Of course, I had to use something she taught me - stamp in nature's colors. :)
I masked a circle and the lower portion and airbrushed the sky using Copic markers B23, B28, R08 and Y15. It didn't turn out as smooth as I wanted so I ended coloring over the airbrush. I also used B41 and Y38.
Next, I colored the scene.
hills, grass in back: E51, G40
grass, bushes in front: E51, G24, G40
pathway: E51, E53
trees: E27, G05, YG23
Lastely, I added a few clouds and some birds in the sky.
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
