Beautiful Papers

For a change I've used a beautiful piece of DSP as a backdrop to some stamping  rather than getting inky and making my own.  The main image was stamped in place first, followed by some background stamping to give the impression of a distant forest and then some foliage was added in the foreground.  The fantasy boat was coloured using coloured pencils, also some tiny foiled dots which give a lovely subtle touch of shine which sadly doesn't show in the photo.

Paper - New Horizons DSP from Stampin' Up
Main Image - Liberty from Lavinia Stamps
Selection of tree and foliage stamps from Lavinia, Stampin' Up and Card-i-O
Faber Castel Polychromos pencils
