Look Deep Into Nature

I have a number of Beewax and Stampscapes images that have been waiting on my work table for me to have time to create.  I finally found a little time and made this garden scene for the Craft a Scene challenge.

I stamped the scene on Cyrogen Cardstock that I purchased from Peddlers Den at the Savannah retreat in May.  This paper is amazing!  I colored the foreground image with Copics and then added PanPastels to the background mountains and sky.

Card Recipe:
Images: Beewax garden, Stampscapes mountain (actually originally purchased from A Stamp In The Hand), Sentiment from Stampscapes sentiment collection
Paper: SU Very Vanilla, EK Success Nature Dragonfly (the dragonflies are raised and sparkly), Early Espresso
Ink: Copics - G05, G09, G14, YR00, YG97, YG95, YG93, E01, E02, E15, E17, E21, E23, E31, E37, YR14, YR01, YR000, PanPastels
Embellishments: Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangle, Prima Pearls

Challenges for this card:
Have a wonderful Sunday!

This is a remarkable piece of stamped art. You created a scene so perfect it is hard to imagine it is made up of individual stamps and not one large stamp.
Thank you for sharing your stunning card with us at FSC.
