Wish you were here

My card today is from the Echoes of Italy stamp sheet which I must say I fell in love with when I recieved it. The images stamp so well and they are so detailed. They are a pleasure to colour and I think take you to a serene place. I have lots of friends who holiday in Italy and always tell me of the relaxing and refreshing times they have had while there.



I coloured to the trees with various pens and drew under the trees to add a hint of grass. The sky is made from Dried Marigold Distress Ink and Sailboat Blue Adirodack Brights. The grass is Crushed Olive. I mounted onto white and black card then onto an olive green base card.

There's more inspiration to follow from the DT so keep popping back

  3. Love this stamp set. I was in Italy last year. But had to come home cause my dad colapsed and died. I do try to hold onto what good memories I have of being there

  8. Your mounting is gorgeous the way it really picks out the colours of your image & I have to say I love your sky - very Turneresque.
