King Over All The Earth!

I am continuing my Stampscapes pilgrimage with some new stamps that I picked up last weekend from Crafty Capers in Nanaimo. If you have seen any of my other Stampscapes posts you know that I am new to SC and I have a special bent to make up the images into fancy cards using all the current techniques and embellishments.

I created a window style card with the Stampscape image on the inside of the card.  This one was tough because I had to cut using a craft knife between the trees so that we can see the image. I also finished it off with a verse from ODBD and a fawn from my Cricut Wildlife cartridge.

I am using the glossy paper and Adirondack inks like all the blogs suggest.  I also added Copics in a few places (trees) and Distress green Forest Moss (it's the darkest I have).  I am still getting used to the fact that all the ink fades over night.  When I first finished the coloring it was really dark and I thought I might have botched it, but in the morning it was quite faded and I had to add more color.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 3, A Stamp in the Hand (hills), Art Impressions (grass), Autumn Brook 212G, Tree Duo 085A, Duck Trio 023A, Tree Trunk Trio 088F
Paper: Early Espresso, Ruby Red, Basic Grey Sweet Threads
Markers and Ink: Distress Forest Moss, Adirondack Meadow, Lettuce, Denim, Stream, Butterscotch, Cloud Blue, Sailboat Blue
Embellishments: Prima pearls, Spellbinders Label One, Leaf ribbon, Leaf punch, Wildlife Cricut cartridge
