Craftin Desert Diva Canoe scene

For my little outdoor canoe scene, I used lots of Craftin Dersert Diva digi stamp sets:

Camping outdoor set for the signs
Tribal outdoor set for the mountains, Totem and Canoe
Tribal moose set for the moose.
I printed them all on Alcohol marker friendly paper and cut them out, then colored them with alcohol markers

For the backdrop I inkblended Distress Oxides : Blueprint Sketch, Cracked pistachio and mermaid lagoon, masking off the edges to make a lake and a  grass bit and sky, I wanted to keep the background calm, but still give definition. I think there’s a lot going on the card, without adding texture, like
water droplets or splatter on the solid background.

I kept to the same colors on the images for all my August cards, to make a coherent set, also to keep the palette small as more colors make it even more busy.

For the mountains I did add a line at the bottom, to make it easier for my plotter to cut it out, you don’t need to do this, if you cut by hand, or make one layer cards of course.

I adhered all elements with liquid glue and or foamtape for dimension. I did also color a paddle and wanted to add it in the background as if the Moose lost it, but I decided against it.
