Italian Villa by Moon Light
This is my second card from the new Echoes of Italy stamps that have been released by Chocolate Baroque this week. The first card is over on the Design Team Blog. I love the blues as it reminds me of the beautiful sunsets we have had over the summer months.
I enjoyed playing with the stamps to create the backgrounds, I have a stash of them for the future. I have been drawing lines on the back of most of stamps recently to help line them up. The main image was quick to colour. I started with the trees in various green Copic pens and subtle shading of the buildings with creams and greys. The sky and the grass are Distress Inks and I applied them with a soft shaving brush. I find using a brush can give you a softer colouring.
The girls from the Design Team have some fabulous cards to show so take time to have a look around their blogs.
Have a good day
