Sunset Over Wetlands VideoPosted: August 9, 2021 Filed under: mountain magic, Penny Black, Stamped Landscapes | Tags: Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress inks 9 Comments
Scenic stamping can be so much fun and working with the new ‘mountain magic’ set from Penny Black is proving to be delightful. Even though the set mentions mountains, in this card I am using the wide hilly stamp to represent island strips in a wetlands environment when the sun is setting and hitting both water and land.
Once again I did the sunset sky first by swiping the watercolour paper through diluted ink. It is not possible to control the result with this method but it is possible to create stunning skies. Take a look at the video below to see the whole process.
I really enjoy working with scenic stamps, especially switching the time of day or time of year with colour choices and arrangement. I also like to look through my scenic and nature stamps in order to add more elements to the scene. I will be doing that with these two simple stamps from the ‘mountain magic’ set.
Hope today’s video inspires to you to swipe a pretty sky and stamp some scenery over the top!
Seeing your landscape develop was a real treat.
Love your colors. You captured the sky so beautifully.
LOVE this combination of colours for both the background and your stamped elements, Heather. Great video!!
Wonderful scene Heather, You captured that peaceful evening over the wetlands so well.
After seeing this that stamp is on my wish list! What a gorgeous sky and lake you have created! Thank you so much for the video too! I am always intrigued by your color combinations when stamping.
Such a wonderful background look to the sky and water Heather and the three tiers of land going off into the distance and the foreground bulrushes really add great interest to this beautiful scene. Thank you for the video to show us how you achieved it. x
