With 2011 behind us it is now time to reflect on the past year using my
 Stampscapes images I was able to complete this scenic card.

How to:
Using glossy paper I brayed Adirondack Aqua, sailboat blue and Denim.
Added Stampscapes Lakeside Cove Large 0496 and Loons with refection 262A
with India Ink (Archival and Fade Resistant) then I stippled around the edges with Adirondack Denim and Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Black Soot

This card is for:
Make My Monday - - Nature-Birds
Allsorts - - #135 New Beginnings (New Year)
Sweet Stampin -  - New Beginnings (New Year)
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Craft a scene (anything goes)

Lisa, my dear sister DT member. I am so glad that you decided to stamp along with us at Craft a Scene. I confess that I thought of you several times when Sheree and I decided to get our vision off the ground. I do hope you will play along often and even consider becoming part of the design team. I would love for you to do a tutorial on your tri-shutter card even if it is only as a guest designer.

Thanks again for playing. NancyD

Gorgeous scene Lisa!! I love your layout and coloring! I have a hard time incorporating the loon into scenes because it always looks too big. You, on the other hand, have placed it perfectly!
Thanks for playing around with us at Craft A Scene!
