The lovely Rosemary has set this fortnight's challenge at Opus Gluei.
And what a fabulous challenge from Rosemary, I could make hundreds of
things with this theme as I'm sure you could too.
I made an Easel Card
of a posh house and garden scene which is a Docraft stamp by the artist
Michael Powell, and er I went a bit mad with the lace, which unlike
shiny stuff, it would appear you can have too much of -hrumph.
I used part of a silk scarf (a bargain charity shop find) to make the curtains.
I am staggered by the two hours it took me to colour the picture
with Derwent inktense pencils. I wasn't messing about honestly, but
colouring solidly. The curtains mask some of the picture so the stamp is a bit wider than shown on this card.
His latest range of stamps, just out, are even better and are seaside, beach huts and lighthouse themed.
No wonder I don't do much colouring....
It would have been quicker to get my watercolour paints out and do it with them, but Inktense pencils are just fabulously vibrant and bright.
Once you get a taste of them there is no going back...
Hope you are inspired by this theme and join in.
