I love trees and skies and have been playing a little with inks and stamps.  Sunsets at this time of year are particularly stunning and especially after a clear day such as those we’re having at the moment.

This one was made after watching one of the Stampscapes videos on You tube

… and aged poppies.

The poppies are a mask, not stamps –I love poppies but why do they lend themselves so well to ageing?

I used Brilliance inks and love the effect.  Here’s a close up of the crackle effect.

See you soon!

All are just stunning in their own way. You have a wonderful talent for creating movement in your work, every card is inked up beautifully.

The top one is my favourite, the trees are fantastic, but the colours - oh, that is a beautiful card. I have been enjoying the stampscapes videos too, need to catch up with some more! Have a great weekend.

Another set of beauties but have to admit I'd give a great big WOW! to the first card, so dramatic and vibrant; I love the colours.
