Inspirational #112 ~ Color in the lines

I'm hosting this week @ Red Rubber Inspirationals , with Inspirational #112 to color in the lines of your stamping using inks, chalks, markers, paints, colored pencils, Stickles, etc. I scrapped these photos of Eagle Falls in Lake Tahoe, to compliment the Majestic Mountain stamp set using the Willoughby Patterned Cardstock Collection.

I started by inking my image with Ranger Archival Ink (potting soil) and Palette Inks (landscape and jardin moss). Then I used Pebbles Inc. chalks to color in the mountains, rocks, and sky. I finished it off with Stickles (stardust) on the snow and waterfall, and (lime green) for the centers of the flowers.

I stamped the large flowers using the Nothing is better stamp and colored the centers with brown chalk. For some texture I embossed the Speckle background over the centers using Distress Embossing Powder (vintage photo). The smaller flowers were stamped and water distressed using Pressed Flowers. I stamped "eagle" using Distressed Typewriter Bet. I used gesso and Tim Holtz' Stripes Stencil to make the waterfall on the right, and the Cargo Stencil to write "falls" with a white pen.

The bark is from Mother Nature herself, which I thought would be perfect for a nature page to use the colors green and brown for Category 2 in the March Four Categories Challenge @ This also my entry for the March Creative Titles Challenge .
And for Rochelle Spears March Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

I used the first row on top.
bird ~ the sticker of an eagle Bo bunny (trailmix)
border strips ~ I used 4 strips of pp 
paint ~ I used Ranger Dabber (lettuce) on the green paper and brown glimmer mist.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Beautiful layout Drea! Your photo coordinates so well with that stamp image!

  2. Your layouts just knock me out every time. You are so talented. You make me want to try to scrapbook again.

  3. Wow, that's a scrapbooking masterpiece! Very cool, looks like it took a bit of time to create too. Thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving such a kind note on my "Teeny Tiny" card.
