Desert Layers

It's Monday! Time for another challenge on the Outlines Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is to use layers in your project. The Outlines Rubber Stamp Company has so many stamps that are ideal for stamping multiple times and then cutting and layering. Make sure you play along this week for your change to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company!

For my card this week, I layered paper, inks and images. First I cut an image panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with a Nestabilities die. I then layered the following dye inks onto the panel by sponging: SeaShells Conch Shell, Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Adirondack Sunset Orange, and Distress Ink Fired Brick. This was to create the desert sky. Then I cut a piece of beige cardstock with the same Nestabilities die, tore and layered onto the sky panel to form the ground. I sponged the ground with Adirondack Latte dye ink and Vivid! Taupe dye ink.

I stamped the Outlines Split Layering Collage - Southwest (I-1060) two times onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock using Marvy dye black ink. I then proceeded to color and cut the adobe house, sun and gecko with Copic markers. I placed these images and pop-dotted them for dimension into the scene. I used a Prismacolor pencil for some ground shadowing by the adobe house. The gecko's eyes were colored with Tuxedo Smooch.

I then place this image panel onto a two layers of paper: a piece of patterned paper from The Paper Studio that was dry embossed with a Sizzix folder, framed by a piece of gold cardstock.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you had a better weekend than The Ohio State Buckeyes. I think it is going to be a very long season.

I'm gonna start calling you the Scene Queen... you have done it again, deconstructing stamps and rebuilding scenes with the elements. Beautiful!
