Stamp the Manchurian Woman Portrait 29-763 in the left corner of the White Glossy cardstock with black dye ink.

Then we take the stamp of the little temple 101-770 and stamp it on the right side of the card in the middle.

Before you stamp the boulder wipe off some of the ink with a little paper or something from the sides of the stamp to get a misty effect.
Take the Stampscapes boulders and stamp them twice around the temple.
Then use a mask only the left boulder to protect it.Back To Top
Take the Baby Breath stamp 61-048 and stamp it several times to use as a bush on the boulder under the temple.
You do not need to mask the "bushes".Back To Top
Take the Sampan rubber stamp 29-248 and stamp it just a little over the boulder.
That is why you had to mask the boulder… so that you can see the boulder in FRONT of the Sampan when done.
Create a mask and mask all three boats.Back To Top
Take the Ocean Scene rubber stamp 59-001 and stamp it on the left side of the boats, take care to line the coast line to match the coast line from the boats… otherwise you will not have a good horizon line and that will ruin your artwork.Back To Top
Take the Mt Fujii stamp 29-306 and, as with the boulders, wipe off some of the ink from the top and bottom of the stamp and stamp it just a little above the boats.Back To Top
Grab the Stampscapes Clouds stamp and the Sea Brights Citrus Green inkpad..
Stamp a line of clouds above Mt Fujii and between the boulders.
Create a mask of the clouds for later on use.

Remove all masks and start coloring!Back To Top
I always use Marvy, Tombow and Brush Markers to color the details.
Always use colors you like. If you think a dress need to be red, then color it red.
It is your artwork and you should color it with your own imagination.Back To Top
