Challenge 31 - Create A Scene

This week for our Create A Scene, we are pleased to welcome Mountain Ash Crafts as both our guest designer and also this weeks challenge sponsor.  We regularly visit Mountain Ash Crafts in it's beautiful setting just outside Dudley, where the workshops and demonstrations are increasingly popular.  It's a wonderful place to visit, you always receive a warm welcome with a smile and there are always staff on hand to answer any questions.

This weeks GDT spot was created by Jules (who also makes great coffee!)

Jules Recipe

The stamp used is the Inkylicious The Coppice stamp

PanPastel's used were

Ultra marine blue
Bright yellow green
Titanium white

Versamark watermark ink pad
Small die cut circle
8x8 Card stock
Sequin waste
Blue/green card from stash
Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine


Decide on the contours of your scene and apply the Pan Pastels working from dark in the foreground to lighter in the distance with blue to represent the sky.

Stamp the trees in groups – Make the distant trees a little lighter by blotting ink from the stamp onto scrap paper. Don’t be afraid to overstamp some of the trees, particularly in the background to give them greater depth.  

Our design team have been working away as always to produce these brilliant inspirational items.  Thanks ladies, you never fail to come up with the goods.
