Stampscaped for a Male

I thought I would show you how I made this male birthday card. I used the stamps shown below to create this scene. The stamps are from Stampscapes found at . By arranging the stamps you have an unlimited amount of scenes you can create. I have so much fun doing this. I wanted to create some male birthday cards for my DH to use at work so this was the basis for this card.

I colored the image using Prismacolored markers for the trees, cabin, fence but used SU ink for the sky and grasses. I applied the ink using a sponge for the sky and sun. The grass was done using a Kuretake water brush by the cabin and the small stamp for the field. I used a combination of old olive, mellow moss and so saffron on the field. All the images were stamped with walnut stain distress ink. Vintage photo and walnut stain were sponged on the edges as well.
On the inside I used this beautiful paper. All I could find for the name was Hang. If you know of this paper perhaps you could let me know. I purchased this loose paper at Michaels. It is so beautifully thick...wonderful to work with. I used the label one nestibility for the sentiment section on the inside.
I really hope you go check out these stamps. They are very affordable and really allow for a lot of creativity. I am not associated with these stamps I just really enjoy them.
Well March has entered our area with a blast...of snow and cold and wind. What more could I ask for. Just a perfect day for stamping or surfing the web. Talk later.
