Stamp Addicts meets Art Impressions and Stampscapes


Good Morning peeps, I hope you all had a good long weekend. The weather stayed kind here in the Fens, although the wind was a tad cold and this morning it was minus 2 and quite white in the shade.


I fancied a bit of brayering........just for a change I hear you say and thought I would combine some of the Stamp Addicts scenic stamps with Stampscapes ones along with Art Impression just to prove their versatility. As usual Adirondack inks, speedball brayer and I kept them both quite simple just matting and layering to set off the scenes I created.

Things are still slow going on the computer front with the dodgy eyes and balance, but bit by bit I am getting a bit of blogging done and really appreciate your patience with my slow progress.

  23. No need for apologies - it's just a pleasure to see what you are creating & to know you are able to do what you love doing. Take care with the eyes & balance. The water in the first one just sparkles with life & I love that you created three differently coloured skies.
    Much love
