I do love my Stampscapes stamps, and usually do them on a brayered background, as the texture type stamp Kevin generally uses to colour his scenes with, first I have never got the hang of, and second, it takes so long to get the colour build up.
I used two stamps, Lakeside cabin, from Nature Sheet #6, and Lakeside Island, from Nature Sheet #4.
Stamped in Adirondack Espresso, and I heat set the first stamp before doing the other, as the ink was quite wet on top of the inked surface, and I always use a stamp positioner to match my images up! Kevin does say theres no need, the images match up/overlap ok, but I know I would miss my mark, then be annoyed.
So I trimmed down both images and matted them onto dark brown card.Then I decided they didn't look right on plain card, so had a root about and found some gold card I'd embossed in a 'bug folder, Forest Branches. I cut that to size for the front of the card and mounted my image on it. I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment, it comes from a Debbi Moore set, on one of the scraps I had trimmed off, matted it the same and added it under the image.
For the second, I ran some dark orange card through the 'bug with the Tim Holtz Woodgrain folder, doing it twice to get the length. Did the same with this one to cover the card front, and used the same Happy Birthday stamp too.
