Hello Crafters!

It’s been such a long time since I’ve made a one layer scene card I had to indulge a little. Bill the Bear has all these wonderful accessories to create amazing scenes and with the weather getting warmer camping season is just around the corner.

My original game plan was to create a day time woodsy scene but I really wanted to use that campfire so glowy night scene it is. I know it’s such a sacrifice lol. Making items glow is really much easier than it looks and when you’re done with it man it looks cool.

I started by masking and stamping all my images. When creating a one layer scene you really want to make sure you stamp the items in the forefront first. In our case here I stamped in this order. fire, vest and hat, bear, honey pot and mushrooms, wood stump, cattails. Or I would have if I knew what I was doing lol. I got so caught up in my bears outfit I may have a stamped a little out of order but it was salvageable in the end.

Once the stamping was done I started by coloring the background. my items up front would block all the firelight from the background areas so it’s not something I have to pay attention to when doing the water and sky. For the dirt and grass I used very light colors so the glow would easily go over top. I made my grass shading darker has it moved away from the light.

For the glow I colored just like I normally would but instead of filling my highlights in with my lightest color I reserved a white area. This allows me to go back in with a pale yellow marker and add that over the highlight areas giving the appearance of a camp fire glow. In some cases the glow will be stronger, like anywhere that is super close to the fire, or softer where it’s further away, like the cattails. Another thing to pay attention to is the direction the glow comes from. since the fire is left center anything in the far right won’t have much light. front left will have tons like the stump does.

After the coloring was done I went back in to add some details with a white gel pen. My little peanut was offering his input so we ended up with a tiny full moon in addition to the stars. I also added some polka dots to my mushrooms. I outlined everything with my journaling pens before embossing my sentiment in white. I really love the way this card came out and so did peanut. He asked if he could have it 🙂

You can see the entire card and hear all of my rambling in the video below ha!

Thank you so much for joining me!
