Today is the third challenge over at Craft a Scene; the theme this month is Moonlight. And we have a sponsor for this challenge, Kevin from Stampscapes is giving the challenge winner a $25 shopping spree at his website. How generous is that?
I love making tall scenes and this was inspired by a scene from Kevin's gallery, Kevin's scene is done with dye inks on glossy paper. I created mine on Cryogen metallic paper and colored it with Copics. All stamps are from Stampscapes rubber stamps. I started with the Seaside Cove stamp first, then added Boulders with Lichen in the foreground which I masked with Eclipse tape. Next I added the sand pattern. To create the sky, I stamped Eerie Moon in the sky, filling in with Cloud Strips above and below it. Next I added Palm Island. I added some color to the sand and island - E31, rocks E70. I then airbrushed blue into the sky and around the edges; B28, B29, B39. The last step was to add the palm Fronds top and bottom. Finished size is 4 x 9.25 inches and will fit a business envelope.
