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



  1. This is an amazing image and I love what you've done with it

  2. This is so beautiful Flossie. Beautiful color and layout.
    Lovely greet

  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

  4. Ooh I so agree this is a wonderful stamp and a fab background, x

  5. Gorgeous card, I love the soft colouring.

  6. This is a beautiful card I love how you have coloured it

  7. Beautiful card, it makes me want to go there now!

  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.
