Craft A SCene - Make A Scene Using Your Favorite Technique

The beginning of February and it's time for a new challenge over on the Craft A Scene blog, and this month we're asking for you scenes to be made using your favourite technique. My favourite technique is making backgrounds to stamp scenes onto. I start with my glass cutting mat ( a heat resistant mat would do just as well), and then either using spray inks or ink pads I put the colours I want to work with on to the mat. I then spritz with water and take the card and lay this onto the colours, you can re-spritz with water and the affect you get will be a lighter shade of the one taken previously. I love the random look that this gives and after stamping and bit of shading with distress inks you can make scenes just like this one. The stamps I've used are from Chocolate Baroque, Sheena Douglas and Inkylisious and they were stamped using distress ink pads. I hope that you'll have time to pop over to the blog and take a look at the cards that the rest of the design team have made for your inspiration, and make a scene for us using your favourite technique.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations - Wings, Fantasy and Fiction
Creative Inspirations - Stamping

Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Really beautiful with the fairy chatting with the birds, what a lovely card this would be to receive. There's a lovely depth to the hills and the tree in the foreground emphasises this.
