Picture This

I wish I could paint! I can draw if you class drawing Top Cat when I was in my teens. I say draw Top Cat, what I could actually manage to draw was his head, complete with boater hat, that's where my talent ends!
Tracey Dutton of Lavinia stamps makes it possibly for anyone to create something of beauty,  all that you need is a bit of imagination, some inks and Lavinia Stamps.
For this card I inked my background using Oxide inks, masking off each area in turn to create the sky, sea, sand and grass. 
 I like to create my scene as if I'm sat under a tree, surrounded with foliage.
 Here I used the following stamps:-
Bulrushes, I stamped them in green then went over the top using a brown Copic
Creeping Vine,stamped in a selection of green shades and
Willow. At each skyline edge I stamped  Stone texture to signify land along the coastline. I then used a white pen to hint at sun glistening on the foliage and touched the sea with stickles to add shimmer. 
If you fancy creating a landscape with your Lavinia stamps, be sure to enter the challenge this month, you could find yourself with £40 to spend on more lovely Lavinia stamps!




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
JAI369, Inspiration pic,
TSOC , Where in the world,
FC172, Coast,
DDC, Beside the sea.

Thanks for stopping by,
