Hello and welcome to another Monday Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Challenge. Today we would like to challenge you to "Make a Scene"! Below are step by step pictures and directions to show you how I achieved my little scene.

First, I cut a piece of white cardstock a little larger than the front of the card I intend to mount it on. I then took a piece of text weight (copy paper) paper and punched a circle near the bottom in the center. I placed the top of the circle cutout over the cardstock about 1/2 inch from the top. This will leave a space at the bottom of the cardstock uncovered.
Using the Ranger sponge applicator (you can use a piece of sponge) I colored the circle in with Mustard seed. I then went over just the edges of the circle with Spiced Marmalade. In the space below, I used Tumbled Glass in a downward motion and Broken China in a sweeping motion across the space. Optional: I used a stampscapes water ripples stamp in darker blue ink tapped off once on scrap paper to get the effect of water.
Remove the paper. Trim to fit your card. Sponge Tumbled Glass near the edges of the entire scene. Stamp sentiment.

I stamped the fishing moose from Whipper Snapper, colored with Copics and cut out and popped him up with pop dots to complete the scene. The sentiment is by Great Impressions.

So, go ahead, MAKE A SCENE!
