Through the Darkroom Door

Browsing through the Clean and Simple gallery at Splitcoast one day I came across a beautiful card featuring some lovely floral stamps I had never seen before.  I did a little searching and discovered a company selling very original and artistic stamps which I knew I just had to have.  The company is Darkroom Door and is based in Australia.  After some serious analysis I narrowed my first order down to three stamp sets and waited impatiently for them to arrive. It was after placing my order I noticed that Darkroom Door is five minutes away from where my brother lives.  So I guess I know what I’ll be telling my family I’d like for Christmas!

The first set I cracked open was the tree set, hardly surprising for me.  I decided to try a spring scene to match what I see outside these days.  My daughter said it looked like an orchard so, an orchard it is, at sunrise with the mist rising and a golden tinge spreading across the hills.  There are four trees in the set but I  repeated only one for this card, using close to cocoa for the trees at the back and chocolate chip for the foreground.

    Oh! OH! What a stunning scene! It is so unusual, so beautiful, and so peaceful! It really did make me sit up and “wow” it. This is just gorgeous, Heather. Now you’ve done it, though; we’ll expect the same wow factor from the rest of your new stamps! And I’m sure you’ll accomplish that. I really love this card. It is definitely “suitable for framing.”

    I love your stamped landscapes Heather and this one is fabulous. It definitely does look like a sunrise with that misty quality you get at the beginning of a hot day, and the ‘sunlight’ is perfectly done.
