Snow on the Mountain



Good Morning, here with another scene card. And to share my exciting news!!!!! I am honored to be part of the first design team with Craft A Scene, can you tell I'm thrilled!!!!! When I read the email I even screamed!!!! I have so much to learn and hope I can pick up a lot of pointers from the rest of the team, so many talented ladies!!!! The list of the complete team is on my sidebar, be sure and check them out. Now for my card, it's 5 X 7, Regular card stock, and yes I do use glossy once in awhile, I just feel I can control the inks better with regular, I first stamped the Autumn Bank by Stampscapes, then inked it up again and stamped it on the Morror Image Stamp I have, lined it up by just eye balling it and stamped it the second time to fill the page. Next I used a mountain scene stamp I have and I'm not sure about the company it's from, it is not stamped on the stamp and I have had it a few years and just don't remember, let me know if you do. Then using Stampin Up inks, I began sponging until I had it like I wanted, I did use orange instead of yellow this time and think it turned out better, with me it's more like trail and error LOL, after the sky and water I added grass and cat tails from Theresa Momber's stamp set Life Is Good. That's it for now, thanks for taking time to drop by, I do appreciate it and God Bless you and remember to smile, God loves ya!!!!

Olga,
Congrats, I knew you would make the team! Love your card. I went to the store in town, they have a tome of stampscape stamps there and the gals are so knowledgeable and helpful. In fact while I was getting my over the counter art lessons two hours past and I was almost late for work. I'm hoping to finish my girl card this morning and get it posted.
