Somewhere Tutorial

Hey there! I hope you all had a great weekend.  Today I have a simple scene card using The Northwoods stamp set.

I started by sponging Memento Cantaloupe ink at the top of my white card stock.  

Sponged Memento Tangelo ink.

Then I used torn sticky notes to mask a horizon line and sponged Memento Lulu Lavender ink.

Used another mask, slightly lower and sponged Memento Grape Jelly ink.

 Another mask and this time sponged Memento Paris Dusk.

Then I sponged Memento Rose Bud ink over the Paris Dusk.

I used one more torn mask and sponged Memento Espresso Truffle ink.

I stamped the large tree, from The Northwoods, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Then stamped the second largest tree.

And stamped two smaller trees.


I stamped the sentiment near the top, then layered with a piece of Pure Luxury Black Onyx card stock. The card base is Pure Luxury Ivory, which I embossed a frame into, using a Spellbinders™Marvelous Squares die template. The finished card size is 4 ¼ by 4 ¼ inches.


Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Every time I see one of your scenery cards, I fall in love with it! I'm trying (and trying and trying..and) to get the same look but somehow just don't tear my masks the right way or sponge the same or something. You are magical!! Thank you so very much for the wonderful tutorials! And for providing such awesome inspiration!!
