A scene

I have seen a number of scene cards created with Majestix stamps by Card-io that use orange and purple and had been meaning to have a go making a scene with those colours. Here is my first attempt using Inkylicious stamps (Twiggy Branch, A Winter's Tale and Silhouette Deer). I stamped the wreath first using twiggy branch, before adding the colour. I used my ink dusters with adirondack inks in peach bellini and Cool Peri, although a bit more purple colour might be better. I used the cool peri to make my snowdrifts, but then highlighted with my clear stardust pen and a water brush. Finally I stamped the deer and the trees. I finished it off by adding dots of green gold and pearl liquid pearls, and then got carried away with three different lots of stickles too, lol! I mounted the panel on a 7x7 card, matting and layering with black and purple. The Deer aren't on the website yet, but like the rabbits in my last post, I am sure if you ring, Deby will pop them in with your order.
Apologies that the photo isn't the best. It has reached that time of year when I only see the house in daylight at the weekend, so this was taken under my daylight lamp. I really enjoyed making this card, so expect to see some more using these stamps and colours!
Thanks for looking!

  18. Your cards are beautiful. But I wanted to order the twiggy branch and the ink dusters and the company you suggested doesn't ship to the United States. Darn. Edna Burgess
