Bears at Night

In class today, we did a mono-chromatic night scene.  The bear and water stamp is from Sutter Stamps, the rest are from Stampscapes.

We started by stamping the bears and waterfall stamp, then adding the Milky Way above it (using Marvy black ink on glossy paper)  Next we added the cattails in the foreground and the branches along the top.  For color we used a stipple brush and 3 shades of blue dye ink, Adirondack Lights Cloudy Blue, Earthtones Stonewashed and Earthtones Denim.  The last step was to add the white highlights with a gel pen.  Here is a second version without any white highlights-

Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

This card turned out so well and was so easy to do with the stipple brush. Thanks for this great card. Edna

This is just beautiful, both versions. I haven't had luck with the highlites, what pen are you using?
