Easy Scenery Cards


Hi there! I love making scenery cards, even if I don't have a lot of stamps made especially for that. I'm all for using what one has available, including a bit of imagination ...

My first card combines stamps from the two sets from Rubber Dance; Carved Whimsy Wood in the back and a tree and leaves from Four Seasons on top, cut out and adhered with foam dots. I stamped the trees first, then drew the ground and grass with a waterproof pen before colouring everything using Zig clean colour markers and a waterbrush. Just goes to show that you don't need more than a few trees to make a scenery card - add a few pen strokes and you're all set! :-)

 The flower in the corner is from Carved Whimsy Wood, with leaves from Four Seasons tucked underneath.


The trees in the back (lighter colours) were stamped, masked and stamped again to make them look as if they are standing behind one another. I used the two leaves stamp to add branches to one of the trees (darker green). The ground and grass are easy to draw in like this - and it doesn't have to be perfect. All we want is the illusion of a ground that adds a bit of depth:



 If you haven't made scenery cards before, just give it a try. 
Start simple..... and before you know it, you've made a heck of a scene!



 Thanks for looking!

I guess it's not common that people go back to see if they were thanked for their comments, so I will say it now: THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment! ♥
