As you know, I love making scenic cards so this new set by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company is  perfect for scenic stamping as well as other techniques.

After stamping all of my images in memento tuxedo black and coloring with prismacolor markers, I stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass ink for the sky before cutting out my additional images to pop up for dimension.  Although you can't see it very well, the background on the card is stamped using the cattails along with walnut stain and garden green ink directly to the card layers for an extra effect.  The grass on the marsh rocks are highlighted using a copic spica pen.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs for a chance to win today's featured set.
