How to Create a Forest Scene Card Video Tutorial featuring Ride With Me Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made last night during my Facebook Live.  I shared in the video how to create a one layer scene card using my Stampin' Blends and the Ride with Me Stamp Set.  I had been asked a few times how I created a snow man scene card last year that I shared on my page.  I never got around to creating a video for that card but I decided to create a new card using the same process that I used to create that one.  Let's look at the card shall we.
I created the card on the left first so that I could show everyone what I was going to be showing that last night.  I did change shape of the trees on the second one.  I wanted to show how to make the trees look like they were in the distance and in the foreground as well as creating a road scene for the truck to be one.  I mean after all it has to have some place to sit.  I enjoy creating these types of cards there's something relaxing about the coloring process.

The largest tip I can give you when creating a scene card is start with the focal image since it will be in the forefront and then work your way back.  When working on the background start with the lightest color of trees because they are in the distance.  So, the reason for this is that anything in the distance will appear lighter because of atmospheric perspective.  As things get closer the will appear darker and darker in color.  For my tree layering I started with Light Shaded Spruce and then worked my way up to Dark Pretty Peacock.  The actual order of the blends for the trees was Light Shaded Spruce, Dark shaded spruce, Light Night of Navy to Dark Pretty Peacock.  

Let's go back a step and talk about the coloring of the truck.  I started with Light Sea Side Spray stampin' blends to create a base coat.  I then added in the dark Sea Side Spray and moved to the light night of navy and then to the dark in the darkest part of the shadows.  I colored the pumpkins in just light and dark Pumpkin Pie.
I put the sky in after everything was complete.  I started with Dark Sea Side Spray and then blended it out using the Light Sea Side Spray.  If you want to add in some clouds the Color Lifter is great to do just that.  If you want more details I recommend watching the video tutorial to see the entire process.  This a longer process video but I show you exactly what I did.  If you are viewing this post by email you may have to click here to view the video.  Some email servers will not show the video.
