fantasy scene

The second of my samples for the shows last month uses one of the lovely images from the fantasy castles set of stamps - I have to admit these were far more my scene than the fairies!
This started out as playing with borrowed distress oxide ink pads on white card, without any idea where I was going, other than trying them out. Looking for inspiration later,  I thought that the palace stamp would fit here as it looked as if it was on a shore, and I already had a watery effect at the base of my very rough landscape, and the strange colour sky fitted the fantasy theme.
 I stamped it with black versafine and clear embossed it before adding colour with brusho powders and watercolour pencils. The palace was stamped onto acetate with the versafine, turned over and  matched up with the original, rubbed firmly to transfer the image onto the watery area. It didn't transfer cleanly, but that didn't matter.
I added foliage from the tranquility stamp set using first and second generation stamping to frame the scene and give an impression of depth - it also toned down the rather bright sky!
