Meadow Grasses still growing!

Here I've looked at different ways of using the meadow scene with the Crafty Individuals set CI-395.
First up I've stamped as before in black onto glossy cardstock:

Then I've started colouring in with Distress Markers:

Until it looks like this:

Looking at it, I wish I'd used Squeezed Lemonade to colour in the seed heads as that's a more lemony yellow, but, that's just me!

Next I fished out a piece of swooshed glossy card from my scrap background drawer (this has used KaleidaColor Bouquet inkpad, I think):

I've stamped up my meadow:

Added extra colour:

And then highlighted in white:

For this next one I stamped a meadow in lots of shades of blue and green Distress inkpads , working from the lighter colours in the background to the darker colours in the foreground:

Then I added some black stamping in front:

Then, 'cos I'd blobbed at the top of the card, I thought I'd hide it by colouring over with corresponding Distress Markers:

This was one of those "ooh dear, what did I do that for moments?!", but you know I can never leave things well alone! In the end I decided it worked okay.
And last of all, I stamped the meadow in lots of different colours:

And then added my own doodling in black:

So there you have it - lots of different ways to stamp a meadow. Haven't made them into cards yet - knowing me, I'll have lost them before I get around to it!!!

Thanks for looking!

Oh, Helen, ich habe mich grade in diese Stempel verliebt.
Aber noch mehr in die wunderbaren Ergebnisse, die ich bei dir sehe.
Das ist alles total bezaubernd, so fein un filigran, und auch farblich superschön.
Traumhaft schöne Werke.
