Dreaming spires (posted by Elaine)

When I saw the spires on the new Gothic Fragments stamps, my fingers were itching to ink some skies. This one uses shades of blue 


I masked the sky with some masking film, before using the scallop nestie mask method to make a cloudy sky.

I embossed the spire and dome and the word Dream from the Artistic Expressions plate in metallic blue EP and finished with some shading with Derwent Coloursoft pencils.

Hope you are enjoying seeing the variety of ideas the girls on the DT are coming up with for these lovely stamps.

  1. Goodness - doesn't this look different from your 'warm' version. Interesting to see how your variation in placing also affects the overall look. A really super pair of cards that has got me really thinking about exploring colours & variations upon one layout. Food for thought aplenty & those mischievous time imps are still hiding minutes - if not quarter hours - from my hours.
