Beach Scene using my own Designs.

I've made a few more cards using my Build a Landscape Stamps and Digi-Stamps - This card is a scene using only 4 Stamps. 
Beach Scene using 4 Stamps

I coloured the background with inks using blue for the sky and sand colour for the dunes. I kept the background landscape stamps in a soft blue colour to create an aerial perspective look and stamped the grasses in the forground in deep brown. This brings the grasses to the foreground making you look into the picture.   I also went round the card with ink to create a darker edge, again leading your eye into the picture.

For this next scene I have used Watercolour Paper 140lb Not Pressed. I painted the background with blue paint and used a soft tissue to take off some of the colour whilst the paint was still wet.   This created the cloud effect that you can see here. For the tree stamp I used a brown ink pad. I also used the grass stamp in the foreground to create depth after painting the foreground using the paint on a dry brush.  The whole scene was then mounted onto brown cardstock to finish.
