yet another Look!

In preparing an article on 3D stamping I decided to use the same cottage scene (Inkadinkado) once again and created a third look using one stamp.

Start by stamping the image twice on white paper both time mixing green and brown inks.  I used the green ink for all the pine trees and the brown ink for the bare trees in the background, the cottage and the ground cover in the front.  Color both images using coloring pencils (Prisma Color).  Trim one of the stamped images using a deckle edge scissor (Fiskars), mount on a light olive paper, trim using a deckle edge scissor and add to a white card.  Take the second stamped image and cut out the cottage and the large pine tree in the front.  Attach the cut-outs using raised adhesive dots to their appropriate places on the card.   used two thicknesses of raised adhesive dots to create further depth by having the tree further out in the foreground than the cottage.  To finish the 3D look I pulled apart a cotton ball and attached a string of it to simulate the smoke coming out of the chimney.

I didn't add any text to this card just to keep it simple!
