I had a blast creating a fun little scene with this adorable stamp set! Lots of masking and some pre-planning to make it happen, but all worth it in the end!
I started out by creating masks for each of the stamps that I decided to use -- the rhino, bird, two rocks, two grasses and two flowers. Since no items overlapped the rhino, I stamped it first on my white panel using black ink. Then I just continued building the scene, stamping the flowers, grasses and then the rocks, placing masks where needed. Lastly, I stamped the cute birdie on top of the rock.
Once all the stamping was done, I placed all the masks on each item, so I could create the sky and grass. I also cut out 4 masks of the cloud images in the set and placed them on the white panel. I used a blending brush along with Splash and Key Lime Fizz Reactive Inks to create the soft background. Then I removed the masks and colored in the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush. It's always so much fun to see a scene like this come together!
I added a sentiment and some hand-stitching around the panel and then mounted it to a Sand Top Folded Card. For some final details, I added Black Enamel Dots to the eyes and used our Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen to add some shine to the rhino's horn, bird's beak and flowers.
