Stamping Scenes

One of my favourite crafts is rubber stamping scenes.

There are a wide range of scene stamps available from shrubs and hills, churches and cottages, livestock and wildlife. The challenge in using these stamps is that you have to make up the scenes yourself.

With a bit of practice I managed to put some convincing scenes together.

The next tricky bit is colouring the image. I used Aquamarker pens which are water based and used a paintbrush and water to blend. I still need to practise this technique but I am having fun whilst trying!

Well that's a new one on me! Although I do have a box full of stamps and stencils somewhere (I think I was intending to print fabric at on point) I'd never thought of picture making. Have to put it on the list of crafts to try out when darling grandaughter visits;)

These are incredible, Simone, and even the Black and White ones would make excellent cards just as they are too! Well done xx
