More Blizzard Stamping

I will not wax poetic about the blizzard last Saturday. By now you have likely heard all you care to hear it about the news.  But while all that snow was coming down, I did other things and that included stamping.

So this is a scene I built.  I used two stamps from two different Stampin' Up stamp sets -- both are retired now.  And I used foliage stamps from Art Impressions.  I masked the one potted flower on the left and built up a bush on the right. I sponged the sky.  I did use Stazon to ink up the images so the ink wouldn't run.  I tried to create "shadowing" for the little girl and the 2 potted plants with darker ink for the grass.  The shadows were going off to the left. What do you think? Did I manage to effectively  create a shadowing effect?

Get inky these days!

Wow, I've got a lot of catching up to do here, Judy! Very nice card! I used to never be interested in scene stamping until recently. I do see her leg shadowed and the taller bush on the right. Shadows are hard to do without over-doing, and hard to do period, as least for me so far. lol I'm still trying to do a scene well enough. I've begun blogging again. Please come check out my try at scene stamping here:
I'd love your input! And, you may feel better about yours when you see my incomplete shadowing, haha. I let it get away from me. The thrill of actually combining the scene with my stamps took over. xoxo
