My First Stampscapes Cards

With the encouragement of a dear friend, I finally was brave enough to try a stampscape card. This card is my first try. I used a brayer and a multi-colored stamp pad to create the background.  The stamps I used are: Lakeside Cabin 147F and the rocks off of Babbling Brook 183G. I also used trees and clouds from another maker..A Stamp in the Hand.

Here is my second try. It has the same stamps with the addition of Row Boat 166A. I colored this first with the brayer again. This time I tried to get the yellow at the horizon.  Then I added a touch of green on the trees, brown on the cabin, and some orange behind the trees.
