Making a scene!

It's Heartfelt Creations day again.  There are several new sets being released this week, and they are quite stunning - especially, if you are like me, and enjoy colouring!!  Visit the Heartfelt Creations blog to see projects featuring all the new stamps and a gorgeous new die.

I used the new Scenic Combo Set to create this card;

I coloured this scene using only Warm grey Copic markers.  I love the vintage feel this monochromatic colouring produces.  I used fine glass glitter on the little brook running behind the house and the mountain tops.  The sparkle is gorgeous up close.

I gave the little scene a shot of Pralines and Cream Smooch Spritz and I love the subtle glitz it adds to the picture.  I made the rolled flowers from the same designer paper that I used for the card base.  I cut 2 small flourishes from the Decorative Butterfly Border Die and layered them over the large flourish from the Perfect Petals Die Set.  I layered the punched branch shape and rolled flowers over the shape created by the flourishes.  Love the effect!

Do enjoy the new stamps, and I'll have many more projects using the dies in the coming weeks.
