Super Simple Misty Waterfront Trees...

So back to the wonderful Waterfront stamp set...

This card was the ice breaker in classes... a few simple inks and "strokes" of the stamps... and a simple little square card was born! In less than a minute...

So just Memento Black and Soft Sky ink pads...
And a very quick step by step!

(1) Ink up "single line" stamp with Memento Black... stamp just below half way down at the right hand side...and just over half way across from the right hand side...

(2) Clean your stamp!!!! Re-ink in Soft Sky...

(3) Stamp in from left hand side.. so that you fill in the horizon...

(4) Re-ink and stamp 2-3 more single lines under your land mass... to the right hand side... decreasing the amount stamped in from the right hand side each time...

(5) Ink up your "sea squiggle" stamp in Soft Sky... stamp off onto scrap paper... and stamp your sky up from the horizon... straight edge to the bottom...

(6) Ink up your "sea squiggle" stamp again... stamp off.. and stamp over your tree trio... and so raise the sky line...
Finished off with a Memento Black greeting from the Sale A Bration free and exclusive Heartfelt Blooms set... though in class everyone could add whatever greeting they wished to use...

10.5cm Square card blank... 7.5 cm square Whisper White stamping panel... 8cm square Basic Black mat... OR US Letter 4 1/4" card blank... with 3" square White panel... and 3 1/4" Black mat...

Love this one... even with my inky mistake!!
Spot the somewhat more greyish Soft Sky sea line to the left of the land mass... oops! Had to quickly clean my Memento Black off my Soft Sky pad with a baby wipe quickly after this!
