Through the Darkroom DoorPosted: April 12, 2011
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.
