Dream Home

These country scenes by Linda Williams and Clarity Crafts have long been Groovi plates but have now been turned into stamps.

Trim a piece of Indian Summer Designer Petite card to 5” x 6”. Die cut a mat from black card using the largest nested rectangles picot die.
Stamp the Romany Caravan Scene onto the card in Black Soot Archival ink.
Die cut round the image using the middle Nested Square Scallop Doodle Aperture Frame-Its die.
Add Dream (Word Chains 5) and home (Word Chains 2) above and below the image in the same ink as before.
Colour in the birds with a fine black Posca pen.
Mat up the topper.
Mask off a section of a 7” x 7” white card blank leaving a 1” strip down the right-hand side.
Blend Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet, and Scattered Straw Distress inks along the edge of the card.
Stamp over with some of the birds from the Butterflies & Birds Silhouette Miniatures stamp set as before.
Remove the masking and add the topper to the front of the card.
Draw a line along the edge of the panel and some dots using a black Posca pen. 

To finish, colour in further elements of the image using the same Posca pen.
