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.

These trees and the prettily coloured background look fabulous here Karen, and the stitched frame and coloured background mat show the scene off beautifully. x

I love your Zig Marker coloring technique .... I tried it with a stamp I've had for ages and just didn't know what to do with it. LOL Thank you for sharing this easy, but oh so effective, technique.

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..
