It's time for another challenge from For Your Inspiration! Check out this stunning photograph.
I really struggled to do justice to this beautiful picture. I had a few different ideas and didn't like the way they turned out so I went with my "nearly fail-proof" Stampscapes. I used 4 different stamps for the scene.
I created a little cove where the crisp, cool water reflected the sky. It reminded me of the area where we used to live in Arizona. There are some gorgeous granite rock formations there with lakes tucked in between them.
When I first colored the little lake it looked flat so I tried to "fix" it. Didn't help:) In the end, I used my craft knife and cut out the existing lake. I stamped another scrap with the cloud image and shaded it a bit with colored pencils, then attached it behind the panel.
Be sure to play along with this latest challenge. You have until June 29th to join us at FYI!
