Rainbow colours in Patchwork landscapes (by Miranda)

Hello there,

Did you seen them? The beautiful new stamps at Chocolate Baroque? Aren't they gorgeous?
I've been playing with the Patchwork landscapes and I wanted to play with some bright colours.......a touch of Spring..... I had this background with some gesso on it already waiting in my stash and I've use the acrylic bloc technique and Distress inks. The flower is an image from the Tangled garden sheet which matches perfect with these stamps.The trees and flower are coloured with the matching Distress markers. And of course for the finishing touch I've used a white acrylic marker and some fine holographic glitter.
another angle......

And with the 2nd one I've used all the rainbow colours. This time I've played with (my neglected) Distress stains. I've misted my paper with some water and let the inks just flow......I've added here the tangled leaves from the Tangled garden sheet and masked them. On the left panel I've used a stencil and added some Memorybox die cuts.

Well, I hope that I have inspired you and gave your day a colour boost! Sometimes we can use that......

Thanks for visiting , always appreciate your comment and hope to see you next time,

  7. The Tangled Garden is a perfect match isn't it? Fascinating to see so many colours of the trees - which of course is how they look in autumn. However it's that second one which is my favourite with the way you used the die-cuts & the leaves to provide a border for the rainbow background. The bush with all the berries echoes the die-cuts beautifully & I particularly like the way you coloured a good proportion of the flowers & hollyhocks to match those berries. Wonderfully fantastical & magical.
