In the Forest

Good Morning.

I've been super busy so was happy to be able to get a card made using this great stamp from Hero Arts.  Super simple to create the look with this stamp.

I began by colouring directly onto the stamp using my Zig markers.  I gave it a good spray with my mister and stamped.  I took some addition ink and a wet paintbrush and moved some of the colour around being sure not to cover up the white tree areas.
I set that aside to dry and cut the stitched frame from a piece of heavy white cardstock.
I mounted the piece behind the frame and pop dotted that over a piece of coloured cardstock.

* I have been asked a few times what kind of cardstock I use.  My go to is a heavy 120lb paper that I get in bulk from my local Scrapbooking store.  It is ok for doing some stamping applications as long as there is not too much water involved.  I find if I add too much water, the paper will pile up.
Hope that helps.

  8. Gorgeous forest scene Karen. I love how you watercoloured using your Zigs. The background for your trees is so beautiful. TFS what you use for your thick CS. I use SU Whisper White Thick for my card base. It is only 100#, but still works well. What WC paper did you use for your watercoloured main image? TFS my friend. Hugs..
