Spellbinders new release - Create a Scene

Spellbinders has some new product releases this month - it's always fun to bring my spin to things! There's a new collection called Into the Wilderness that is full of beautiful sketched and silhouette images. I chose this Create a Scene set which has an almost wood-carved look. 
A scenic silhouette gives a strong image over an inked background, quick and simple. I thought a faux watercolor look would be an interesting change, so I lined up the image in my MISTI and used Karin markers to ink up each section individually. A light misting of water on the inked stamp allows the ink to flow just slightly, keeping the image but giving it some softness. I gave each section a couple of impressions and layers of ink for depth - I especially love how the trees turned out on the right! In the image they blend together but with the layering of 2 different greens I was able to make them look a little more dimensional.
The building is meant to be a house, but with its wood-carved look I wanted it  to look more like a rustic barn. I added a little light shading with a colored pencil, and pulled some shadows out with a Zig marker next to the fence and in the foreground.
This quote stamp is from my line at Impression Obsession - it was a perfect fit in my empty space... there is an old barn on our road that is literally falling apart, so I thought the quote fit the theme well too. 

The label die I used is here - looks like those are on sale right now! Here is the complete stamp set - there are some other elements that can be used to fill in the sky, and the floral sets in the collection would add some beautiful depth to the foreground!
