Here is my entry for this WONDERFUL CHALLENGE!!

Here's the link to the picture, and I included the song as well if you want to hear what you're seeing. It's "Somewhere only we know" by Keane.

http://understandblue.blogspot.com/2009/03/somewhere-only-we-know.html

I wanted to create the kind of lonely feeling of the song - the "empty land" and the "fallen tree" were my focus for that reason.

I brayered the sky with dark blue, which gives that kind of atmospheric look you see. I just used a soft rubber brayer and blue water based ink. I used a sponge and brown and light blue ink to create the rest of the scene. Then I stamped the branch image in black ink, and added highlights with a white gel pen and a shadow with a grey Copic marker.

I added some teeny stars in the sky with a white gel pen.

I hope you like it. I love this challenge. My Ipod overfloweth! Smiley
