Woodland Glade

Click on image to enlarge

I've done this post card for Rainbow Lady's challenge this week and at some point I'll probably turn it into a topper for a card but I'm running out of time to enter the challenge and really didn't want to miss the first one of the year! The theme is new ideas or new stamps. The tree used here is one of the new stampscape stamps that I got at christmas. Unfortunately, the scan isn't showing it too well but the light tonight would make a photo even worse. I've used two stamps and some masking to get the layout. I've then used chalks to colour the scene and some brilliance ink in parts. The trees were stamped with jet black stazon and the grass with stone grey stazon. 3 different sakura pens were used to create little clumps of 'flowers' but the scan isn't really showing them up. I have to confess to not being entirely satisfied with it but am not sure what's missing - I think I'll have to sleep on it - unless you can come up with any ideas of course!
Thanks for visiting today.


  1. Hi Ann,
    Personally I don't think you need to add anything more to it. It is lovely and the background is so unusual.

  10. So professional looking Ann, nothing needing added in my humble opinion! x

  11. This is just such a lovely scene. I am so envious of you that you can make such a great picture from some stamps and inks. It doesn't need anything else. It's just right.
