Creating a Scene within a Stamp for a Birthday Card

The Alphabet Jungle Stamp stamps lend themselves to creating scenes within the stamp shapes.  Here I used the largest stamp to create a scene for a birthday card.

Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Stamp the large stamp frame towards the top, leaving an equal distance at the top and sides, in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Mask the outside of the stamp and add the Mountains and Hills Mask. Stamp the Alphabet Jungle stamp in Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide to create the ground.
With the masks still in place, brush Dry Weed Artistry ink over the ground. Remove the masks.
Add the windmill from the Wee Farm set in the same ink as the frame.
Mask off the ground and the windmill. Use the side of one of the Wee Trees to add bushes next to the windmill in Fern Green archival ink. Add a couple of the smaller trees in Library Green and Peat Moss archival inks,then add a further ‘bush’ using the side of the same tree as before in Leaf Green archival ink.
Add the gate and the fence from the Wee Farm set along the bottom of the scene in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Join the panels together using a black micron pen and colour using Derwent Inktense pencils, blended out with a watercolour brush pen. Colour the windmill in the same manner.
Add green shading on the ground and blend out in the same way.
Mask off around the stamp again, mask the windmill and the ground and add a little Midnight Blue Artistry ink to the sky with a stencil brush. Remove the masks.
Add Happy Birthday from the Entwined Sentiments with the tractor and barn from the wee Farm set below the scene in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Colour the tractor and barn as before.
To finish, add the topper to a 7” x 7” black card blank.
