The great outdoors ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I seem to be always playing with my Spectrum Noir Aquatints at the moment and I have a card to show you today and here it is …

Another cute little A6 one! 
I love this stamped and coloured scene
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Mema’s Crafts Final June Challenge Anything Goes: I took the optional twist for a man
My scene is an Australian landscape

This pretty little card has been created with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints, a white pencil, gold sparkle EP and a brown felt tip – sort of simples lol! 

Again different techniques were used to create the scene and I have to admit it’s the first time I have created a lovely scene with these stamps.  When I won them I used them a bit but they just weren’t working right for me.  So they have taken me a while to get a good result and I think all the practice was worth it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x
