in the night garden

 Sometimes I do have to wonder if I am a total idiot - why, when the stamp so obviously shows a hot summer day scene, do I want to try a night version, and even worse, a snowy one?
Anyhow, here are the results, so you can judge for yourselves!

Another brick in the wall garden stamped onto grey card using black Memento ink, coloured with a mix of promarkers and pencils. I was trying to get the impression of light seeping out through the shutters.
Black matt onto a white15x15cm base card
Same stamp, this time stamped in brown ink onto kraft card, coloured with pencils.
Mostly I just used white pencil , with brown and green for the foliage and the shutters. I also used a white chalk marker pen to add the snow highlights.
Again a black matt and a 15x15 white card base

Thanks for looking, (even if you do agree that I am mad!) and keep checking for the more normal posts from the rest of the girls.....and there are some beauties coming up......



  1. No you are not mad, what great ideas. Love the light peeking out of the shutters and the winter scene just needs a Christmas greeting and you have great quick batch making cards for next Christmas! Really like both versions.

  2. I love your two different ways of using this scenic stamp Veronica and both have worked beautifully. x

  3. Excellent versions of using this beautiful stamp in two different ways Veronica and I think you succeeded in your mission perfectly. Love the effect of the white on the Kraft card!

  4. Certainly not mad Veronica, and they are beautiful cards, and so clever to show how differently they can be used, great inspiration, Kate x

  5. That grey one would make a great Halloween background (it's not that far away :)

  6. Both so beautiful and what a difference the BG-colour makes!

  7. Not mad at all - inspired is a better term ;)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
