Sheena in the Spotlight - Ageing Beautifully#1

If you follow my blog, you can probably tell that I'm a big-time Sheena groupie. I just love creating with her images! I'm going to start featuring her sets in a Spotlight series of blog posts - starting with Ageing Beautifully

I'll be using a variety of coloring techniques, as well as there may be times I include additional Sheena sets as part of my overall design.   For this design, I started with my lightest color and a piece of  Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. I applied color with a blending tool and a light touch.  TIP: leave some white space somewhere in your scene for a background highlight.

I applied the next layer of color around the edges and created a horizon line and mountain using paper edges and torn paper as masks.

I deepened the color around the edge and added a closer mountain range.

Next, I added the ground with the cracked image in the set. To make the ground subtle, I stamped off.

 To give the illusion of trees along the base of the mountains, I used one of the corner boarders in the set and a stamp positioner.

 I cut the card to size and used the other corner border around all the edges.

To help frame the scene, I added branches and foliage from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Silhouette Highlands set.

On the inside I added a strip of the scene.
