The Robed Woman was stamped with StazOn in Jet Black. This image was masked and
the ledge was stamped, layering it several times. The trees in the
background were stamped by using only part of the Lakeside cove stamp. The
sky was made with the Milky Way stamp with StazOn Jet Black a few times next to
each other. Then the motel was stamped, again in black. The card was
coloured with black and grey chalk and by sponging in some of the StazOn Jet
Black with a cosmetic sponge. The Milky Way in the sky was accentuated with a
white gel pen and the lightning was added with the crooked limb stamp in
Brilliance Moonlight White.

First the image of Mother and Babe was stamped with StazOn in Jet Black. This
image was masked and the ledge in the front was stamped. This was masked as
well, and the leaves were stamped. These were also masked and the last step was
stamping the waterfront in the back. The masks were removed and the image was
coloured with chalks (blue, purple, pink) and cottonballs. All images were
masked again and the text was stamped with purple ink several times. In
the end, accents were added with a white gel pen.

Souce of other images: Ledge 054F - Stampscapes; Branch and tree unknown.
Betryse and the branch on the top were stamped with StazOn in Jet Black and then
masked. An oval template was laid over the card and the background stamps were
stamped in it. The background was coloured by sponging on ink with
cosmetic sponges. (Adirondack Butterscotch for the ledge, Seashells Aqua and
Marvy Matchables Blue for the sky.) Then the template and the masks were
removed and both the branch and Betryse were coloured with regular colouring
pencils. The girl was masked again and the stamps on the right bottom edge
were stamped with StazOn Jet Black. The ledge was coloured by sponging
Adirondack Butterscotch on it and the trees got a green colouring from regular
colouring pencils. The whole card was mounted on blue paper.
