I spent some time in the woods this past weekend in a cabin near an ocean bay and was impressed with the vast color scheme showing off the trees, water and mountains. I looked carefully at how the light danced on the water and amazingly left a wispy gap between the mountains. Now I need to try to mimic what I saw in my scapes. I still have a lot of practicing to do!!
The other thing I want to work on is elevating the stampscaped image to that of other images we use in our card designs. From what I have found on the web, most card makers just frame the finished image and let it go at that. I can understand this technique because we spend so much time on the image to get it just right. Anyway, I am thinking that sometime in the future I might like to run a challenge blog for this type of project.
