Craft A Scene - Week 3 Favorite Technique

It's week three over on the Craft A Scene blog and we are still asking for you scenic cards using your favourite technique. Like before I've made a card using a background that I had made for stamping scenes onto. As soon as I saw the colours on this piece I thought of Storms and this wonderful Oak Tree stamp from Sheena Douglas, along with the words. With the wet and windy weather we've been having here in the UK recently it seem quite apt. Along with the swirls of blue on the background I also over sprayed with some Glimmer Mists, then stamped the tree with Versafine Black Onyx. The couple standing under the shade of the tree was from a set from Inkylicious. I then went around the outside of the page with Chipped Sapphire distress ink, and put in the shadow of the tree with Black Soot. There are so many areas in the UK that have flooding at the moment the shadows could well be reflections. I hope any of you that are reading this have not been affected by the awful flooding and that you are all keeping safe and dry.



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

  5. Beautiful scene Sue, the colours create a mysterious mood. I hope you are doing well, I hear it's been very windy & rainy in areas over there. Here we are getting more snow.... it's never ending this winter. You must be very busy with wedding preparations, I hope it's going well, take care, Shirleyxx

  9. A stunning card, Sue! As soon as I saw it I thought it looked like reflections in water. Trees and inkiness - my idea of perfection! Hope you are not suffering with the floods. We have been lucky here
