Scenic Trails

Scenic scenes on a stamp can be challenging. I believe you can change it up with colors and embellishments, but in the end, a scene is a scene. Here are three cards created with the same stamp. Thoughts?

Scenic Trail Tre - First, I stamped the entire stamp in one color: Evening Evergreen. The stamp set is DistINKtive, so, the opacity levels are different on the stamp. I liked it, but it seemed a bit plain. 

Scenic Trail - I then decided to grab some markers and color on the stamp. The image was still new for me, so I added only a couple of color and then stamped it. I then added more color on the stamped image. You can easily notice where Cajun Craze and Wild Wheat were added. I also filled in the land around the brush and trees.

Scenic Trail Too - Next, I colored on the stamp, using more colors. I decided to very, very lightly mist once with water before stamping. I then used my aqua painter and tried to add more color and smooth out a few areas. 

Next, I die cut the frame using the Deckled Rectangles Dies.

I stamped a few birds and added a sentiment, ribbon, or both.

Next, I adhered it to an Evening Evergreen panel, and then onto its card front - Copper Clay or Basic White.

Lastly, I added a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
