Tropical huts

Here is a tropical scene using Stampscapes and Beeswax stamps. I colored with Copics and did the sky with Adirondack dye inks using the paper towel technique. I use that sky technique often. The scene is done on cryogen paper. Here is another scene I stamped, then colored later.

Stampscapes watermill

During a Stampscapes weekend in Chicago some time ago, I stamped this image while watching and learning from Kevin, the owner of Stampscapes. It was an amazing weekend. I met many amazing artists and friends. I finally colored the scene with Adirondack inks on glossy paper.

Lion in the Wild

During a stamping get together with friends a while ago, I stamped this scene. I finally finished with the coloring using Adirondack inks on glossy paper. The cracked earth is from Stampscapes and I believe the building and the lion are from Beeswax.

Another postcard has been sent. Sending postcards through the mail has been so much fun. I wonder what the post office personnel really think. You'll be seeing more postcards in the future.

10 minute card

I hope everyone had a good Easter. I wanted to share this card because it was quick to do. This time of year becomes very busy with the beginning of yardwork and working in the garden. The stamping slows down considerably. The sky is done using dye inks and a stipple brush. I estimated where I wanted the color changes to be. The stamp is from Cornish Heritage. I just stamped in black on top of the sky. The card front was embossed with a cuttlebug and the scene framed and attached to the front. It might make a good man's card or perhaps a sympathy card.

Die cut challenge

These two scene cards were made for a Stampscapes die cut challenge. I used the Nestabilities Labels One die cut. I don't think you can tell from the image, but the waterfall scene was placed on top of the embossed Cuttlebug Swiss dots. In the cabin scene, the window was cut out and embossed with the Swiss dots and the scene was placed under so it would appear in the opening.
