Tuesday taggers

It is tuesday and here is my TUESDAY TAGGERS DT offering.
Michelle has picked the challenge this week and its a favourite of mine.... MAKE A SCENE.
I love doing this onto an easel type base.... but this time i wanted to get a different 'feel' to it.... i have tried to make it seem as if my lady and her adoring friend are in a dark shaded glade looking out onto a sunlit lake.
I stamped a scene using stampscape stamps and coloured it with ink and watercolours.
I then stamped a tree branch, also from stampscape onto 2 pieces of acetate. I then layered these up ontothe background using foam pads.... so i ended up with 3 layers..... to cover the pads and edges i cut out an arch from black card.
I made an easel type base..... and scored some ridges.... i tore black card and added that to look like the ground.... stamped coloured and cut out lots of rocks and my main image which is from DE-STEMPELWINKEL.

I placed it altogether and made sure it will still fold flatish.... thats a very 'ish' with these scenes...... i am quite please with how the background turned out.... but its a nightmare to photograph..... sorry for the quality of the pics.

Please pop on over to the taggers blog..... the DT are so talented.... and they have some fantastic ideas on this theme.... and we really do look forward to visiting and seeing what you've made.
Thanks for visiting me today. love lynx
