Hello Beautiful People!
Today I'm sharing a stamping tutorial with one of my most favorite stamp lines - Stampscapes. I sent this little scene to my stampin' sister Linda B in Canada - she is my Stampscapes swap partner for November.
To make the scene I started with stamping the cabin. I masked it with low tack tape and then stamped the mountains, stamping off first so they would be subtle in the distance. NOTE: when stamping, work from front to back - masking to preserve images. TIP: after inking up stamp, use a paper towel to dab off color on the bottom of the image when you do not want a harsh line. For the cabin, this allows space for the snow banks.
Next, I laid down a piece of scrap torn paper to mask the bottom of the tree line, stamped the trees behind the cabin in green and then removed the mask. I filled in any missing spots and added detail with markers.
Stamped off to add trees in the distance. NOTE: I inked up the just the top of the stamp so it would make smaller trees and they would look further back in the distance. Colored the cabin, added some shading and filled in trees with markers.
Added shading to the mountains and lights inside the cabin with markers. I also felt like the scene needed more trees, so I just added them in. This is one of the reasons I love making art - you see something you want in your piece and you just add it!
Next, I added in a soft sky with a marker, making horizontal strokes - leaving some white for clouds.
Added snow with a white gel pen.
Added dimension with glistening 3d paint.
To finish the scene, I added a tree branch and a fence in the foreground. With the fence being a darker brown, white acrylic paint worked better for the snow. I also added birds to bring life into the scene.
