Go over to the Paper Makeup Stamps challenge blog because there is one easy challenge for you this week. It's Anything Goes.
I love cards with scenes created with different stamps but sadly my collection of rubber stamps is very poor. So I played with digis. The lighthouse is from PMS Sailing By set, sea and mountains are free coloring page I found in Internet and trees are digital brushes from Obsidian Dawn blog. I erased the tropical trees from the sea image and replaced them. I also added the sun and some birds. I printed two copies of the final image, one of the was cut a part to use it as a mask while inking the image. Most of it is colored with inks and sponges, but lighthouse and trees and also some shading of the sun is done with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. I added some highlights to the waves with white gel pen.

White card base didn't seemed right. Because I didn't had gray paper I inked it with black in ink. That is much better :) I also added some blue to the wooden background with ink.

Take a look what my team mates has done this week. I'm so happy to work with so talented ladies.

  3. Hello Eret,

    You have done a wonderful job with the digi images, I would never have know it was not stamped had you not said. The sky is lovely, beautifully shaded and coloured, I have a real thing for skies in general and if there is a sun as well as in your scene then I am so happy.

    Thank you so very much for taking the time to join in my blog celebration and for your very kind words which are much appreciated.
