Class samples

I taught class to my monthly ladies recently and they had a couple of  requests for scenic cards. The first request was to use this fabulous hawk from Beeswax Rubber Stamps.

After I stamped the sky pattern, I decided I did not like it in the darker blue and had my ladies stamp theirs with a softer blue.  I was right, it improved the scene.  All the scenic stamps are from Stampscapes.  We used Adirondack dye ink applied with a Colorbox Stylus.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

For this next scene, the request was to use loons.  I was inspired by Ken Pesho for the layout of this scene.  And again, when I taught the ladies, I was not happy with the bland coloring and had them add some pink into the sky as well as the water.  It was much better.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  All stamps are from Stampscapes.  Again, we used Adirondack dye ink applied with a Colorbox Stylus.
