Summer Stamp Star Challenge - Week Four


The theme for this week's CHF Summer Stamp Star challenge is Make A Scene. Since I am a SCUBA diver, I knew immediately that I would make an underwater scene, so I picked up two sets from Cornish Heritage Farms' Scene It line just for the challenge (although I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of them in the future!) - Under the Sea and By the Seashore. I stamped the images on Stamper's Anonymous Matte Coated card stock and then colored them with my Copic markers. I airbrushed the sky using a torn piece of Eclipse masking tape to make the clouds.

Since I wanted the scene to be the prominent item on the card, I didn't do much else. The patterned paper is called Cannon from BasicGrey's Oh Baby! Boy collection and the Magic Mesh behind the image is from Magic Scraps. I used the blue scalloped edge card stock for my card base to mimic waves.

Hope you've had a nice weekend! Thanks for looking!

This is so gorgeous! I love your sky - I've GOTTA pick your brain on how to do that. The way you colored the underwater scene just brings the whole thing to life.
