Large Stampscapes Scene

Here is the complete scene that I gave you a sneek peek of a few days ago. My swap partner in Austrailia received it yesterday. This is a full 8.5 x 11 inches on Curious Cryogen White cardstock. It was stamped with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it entirely with Copics markers. All stamps are from Stampscapes, except the little wren from Gray Wolf Graphics. Please see the previous post for the colors I used on the wren and rocks in the foreground. For the cabin, I used E13 Light Suntan and E17 Reddish Brass, the roof is E19 Redwood and E18 Copper. I added a touch of Y17 Golden Yellow to the window panes. For the grass I used a base color of G40 Dim Green, and then shaded with G82 Spring Dim Green. After shading the grass, I always go back over it with the base coat to help blend the colors. The dirt is E41 Pearl White which I also used in the grass to tie it all together. I kept adding the color until I got the intensity that I wanted. The water is BG000 Pale Aqua which I applied in smooth streaks then went over again with the airbrush. I wanted a little of the streaks to show through to give it some movement. I used G82 Spring Dim Green on the reeds in the water. And lastly for the sky I airbrushed R81 Rose Pink, B32 Pale Blue and a little BG000 Pale Aqua. The last step was to add the branches around the edges to create some depth to the scene.
