dreaming beauty (by Veronica)

I love the Mackintosh stamps and sentiments, and had great fun playing with them, as did everyone else on the DT!
The lovely lady from Mackintosh beauty was stamped first using a blue inkpad, then masked with masking tissue. the background was created using the now-traditional torn paper for the landscape and a moon mask in the sky, with the castle from fantasy castles. The grasses are from the baroque meadow single stamp, and the trees use a stamp from silhouette  grasses. The lady was coloured with watercolour pencils.

My second card just used the lady on her own, again coloured with pencils, this time with a distress oxide inked background.The base card was randomly stamped with two of the single rose stamps using the same distress oxide inks.


  1. I love them both Veronica. They show just how different the same stamp can look if you use different backgrounds. Thank you for sharing. X

  2. Two gorgeous cards Veronica and both so very different. I love the design of that beautiful Mackintosh lady and your stamping and backgrounds are just dreamy. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

  3. One of my favourite images and looking so different in both cards, lovely scene with the castle, colours are fabulous.
    Wonderful background on your second card too, Kate x

  4. This Macintosh lady is a beautiful image and I love both versions. The scenery is really pretty, and the oxide inks have made a gorgeous sort of misty backgound on the second, and I adore the colours Veronica. x

  5. Two beautiful cards. Thank you for sharing them.

  6. These are lovely Veronica, still such a beautiful stamp sheet!xx

  7. Both so beautiful and sereen!
