Inky fingers again

Good Morning all, a rather early post before work as I wanted to share this and I think I should be safe now as the card should have reached it's destination.

My good friend Sally very kindly presented me with a set of Inkilicious stamps when we met up at Stampalot last week for the blog girl classes. Sally explained the reason behind the gift was that she knew I was in need of more trees and an excuse to get if, but thanks so much for the kind gesture. So of course I set to work and created a few cards.

This one uses just two coloures of Adirondack dye ink, sunset orange and hazelnut. A brayered sun of course, trees from the Inkilicious set, a little fence and some Art Impression sheep. I sponged some rays of sun coming down the hill, although they don't show up too well on the photograph.

And one more share of one I did a while back, again brayering and stamping poppies from Hero Arts CL449. The small piece with the Penny Black 2905H sentiment was created by laying over the main piece to line up the masks, then brayering using the same masks to carry the flow of the hill and sun.

Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a good week.
