This is my first DT offering for Craft A Scene Challenge for March, which is Tropical Shores. The challenge require some use of palm trees.
This one is made up from a mixture of images. There is a combination of two images from Make It Crafty, which I welded together to get the combination I wanted.
There are also four separate stamps from Clarity Stamps added to the mix, the galleon, the little boat, the seagulls and the flight of birds. None of them were quite the right size to fit the main image, so I stamped them on to a clean piece of white paper, scanned them, then resized them to fit where I wanted. The little boat is part of a set of remountables and also has a lady in the boat, which I removed for this picture, then I also did a reverse print and make it slightly smaller to keep the perspective. Doing this means I can make even more use of well loved stamps, mixing digital and stamped images.
The colouring was done using Derwent watercolour pencils, one of my favourites for playing. I mounted the topper on dark royal blue pearlescent card and then on to coppery colour pearlescent card.
Having seen my offering for this week, why don't you go over to Craft A Scene and join in with this month's challenge.
