Dream Landscape (by Lesley)

Hello everyone I hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful artwork from our Design Team this month. I have to say I think they have excelled themselves once again with their interpretations of our   new Christmas stamps

Well today I thought you may have had a surfeit of the festive season and so although I have used an image from the Sparkling Trees set, it bears no resemblance to Christmas!


  • The trees were stamped with a selection of Distress inks in autumnal shades on to 160gsm cardstock,  then a waterbrush was used to pull out some of the colour. 
  • A piece of 15cm square greyboard was covered with pink scrapbook paper and the 'hills' were curved shapes cut from plain and green patterned scrapbook paper. 
  • After fussy cutting out the trees they were glued into place and and a die cut circle added in the sky. Finally the word 'Dream', from Artistic Expressions, was stamped with Versafine Olympia Green ink.
So there you are, not a Jingle Bell in sight! Thank you as always for dropping by and leaving such wonderful and encouraging comments. Please pop back again tomorrow when normal Christmas service will be resumed!
