Lakeside Scene for Chris

My son has a birthday tomorrow. He loves camping, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, and anything in the beautiful northwest.

I recently watch Kelly Taylor use the Honey Bee Stamps Palm Beach Cover Plate. I don't have that die, but I do have the Lakeside Scene Building Cover Plate and Stencil. I will tell you that you definitely want to get the stencils for these type of dies. It make it so much easier to color the scene. Kelly used multiple colors of greens and blues for her palm beach scene, so I pulled out several different greens and blues for the lakeside scene. Once Kelly was done ink blended she took Copic Markers and added the details to the die cuts. I did the same and it really make the scene have great visual interest.

I cut the canoe from a scrap of red cardstock and the ores from Kraft. They edges were ink blended as well. The sentiment was stamped on Kraft cardstock and heat embossed gold. It was adhered in the small opening of the scene in the lower left.

I used a large stitched rectangle die that was the size of an A2 cardbase to cut around the scene. The die cuts the mountain, but since I had used a larger die to cut around the scene I was able to add some foam squares behind the mountains to add some dimension. I really like the way it turned out.
