Craft A Scene


Well the title says it all, Craft a Scene!
My good stamping friend Olga, told me about this new challenge site Craft A Scene.
I have very few stampscapes stamps, but here goes.
My paper is glossy tri fold paper from Staples(I can use both sides if I goof)
For ink I used Black StazOn, Marvy #60 Salvia Blue, # 96 Jungle Green, #5 Yellow and the following Tim Holtz distressed inks Fire Brick, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, and Wild Honey.
My stamps, Cabin with Fence 144F, Boulders with Lichen sm. 210C, Pine Row 150E and from Crackerbox Palace Stagecoach EO1201. I had to use my sponges because that is all I had on hand. My stamp store in town carries the stamps and the sponge holder I'm missing and they are closed today! :(.
I will be there first thing tomorrow they are having a store wide sale. I wasn't going to go, but now I think I must!
That's it for today, must feed Bob before he leaves and get ready for work.
Hugs and have fun creating your scene, I just may do a few more.

LOVE your scene Colleen!! Fantastic layout and the colours you chose to sponge on are so warm and inviting! My Pine Row stamp has sat idle for a while now and you have inspired me to bring it out again!
Thanks for playing along at Craft A Scene!
Hugs,
Sheree

Colleen, Thanks for playing along with us in our very first challenge. I love your scene, especially the stage coach. I don't think I have ever seen that one before. The scene makes me think I am looking at the old Bonanza show.

I have looked at rock stamps in the stores but never buy any because I don't know what to do with them. You and Sheree have both provided some great ideas. Lovely job! NancyD

Love your use of colour in this one- it really pulls you into the scene. Smiled at Nancy's comment about Bonanza- I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing as I scrolled down, lol.It great to see so many people joining in with the challenges, I am so looking forward to making a lot of new friends here.
