I can't believe that we are nearly half way through the year, it's flown by so far. As it's the beginning of a new month, it's time for a new challenge at Craft A Scene, and this month we are asking that you make a scene using Forest Animals from the area/country you live in. I've made this card using this lovely stamp of a Badger from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew collection, the trees and grasses are from Stampscapes. I started by stamping and masking the Badger, then I stamped the trees and masked them. Using soft brushes and Adirondack ink pads I graduated the colours through from green, yellows to blues, then removed the masks. I then added a some dark gray promarkers to the Badger just to deepen the colour of the black in his coat. The grasses were stamped using peeled paint distress ink, and I added a little brown promarker as shadow under the badger. Finally I've added a little bio on the European Badger. I know that these are in our area, as very early one morning when returning home after a trip out, one walk across the road in front of our car, I'm glad to say we were not going very fast and we were able to get a good look at him.
Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
