Tutorial - Creating a Scene with your Cards
For my first type of scene we are going to start with Sponging on your background. You will need 1 piece of White Card stock. Since Scenes take up more room than most cards I some times make my Scene cards up to 5 x7" or 6x6" depending on what I am doing but some are the regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" too. You will Begin to learn what size you want as you practice making scenes on your cards.
For my Greens I use SU inks in Garden Green as the main Green and Green Galore and Old Olive as my dark and bright accent greens. So swipe the sections like you did with the Blue only this time we are putting a dirt road in the middle of the patches of grass so only do about 1/3 of the card from left to right.
So now you can finish off the two other shades of green or move onto the Brown on a new sponge depending on what you prefer as you learn your Technique. I usually use one side of the sponge for my blue the other side for my green and a different shade for my browns so my browns do not take over my other colors later.
So above I took a picture of the Scene and the 3 Blue inks I used.
This tutorial will teach you how to make the Scene above with The Character Cafe Fairy Belle image.
So I take 3 shades of my Copics in Green I use G06, G05, and G28 usually for a bright light green a darker bright green, and a dark green.
Now I take the mid tone green that is still in a bright shade and fill in the open bottoms of the V shape patches you see above.
Then I also outlined my wood pieces with that same dark brown.
Next I colored in the wood pieces with the lightest shade of brown and also added some shading with the middle shade of brown as well.
In this picture you can see how I added onto the Tree that our Sweet Character Cafe image is climbing in to make it big enough for the Tree house to fit onto the Tree over the image.
If you would like to upload your card to SCS Gallery (or others for that matter!) note TCCWIW5 please so we can find you. Oh, and let us know!
Here are some of my Past Scenes:
