Santa’s VisitPosted: August 21, 2017 Filed under: Santa's visit | Tags: Penny Black creative dies, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 3 Comments
I think this quiet little scene is going to be a popular one this Christmas. It looks so peaceful and pretty, just like it does around here after a fresh snowfall (which will be welcome in four months time and not before!) I kept my colour scheme simple for this one and stamped first in Paris Dusk memento ink. I then did some blending with a wet brush over the scene to solidify the image a bit before adding black ink. I did some partial inking of the stamp to get shadows on parts of the trees and houses.
I wasn’t sure about the navy blue die cut sentiment because it does get a bit lost. In real life however it is popped up on a couple of white layers and sparkled with a clear wink of stella pen so I let it stay!
I am currently lakeside and away from my workroom and internet for a week. I decided to take only this book and these supplies for a little artsy down time.

This winter scene is beautiful Heather and love that strong blue with the black over it. Hope you enjoy your week at the lake and do lots of lovely arty pieces of work. x
