A landscape



So how is everyone this morning and do you have any sunshine ? Despite the weekend showing all the signs of Spring having arrived, the last three days have been dull and dark, but at least it's fairly mild.

Looking at the growing pile of files on my desk I am going to be busy this morning, so thought I had better do a quick post now before I get stuck in. My share is a simple bit of brayering with a touch of ink dusting........still loving these.  I stamped the large tree first using archival back ink and the tree from an Andy Skinner set. Then masked a sun and added the sky with Adirondack dye inks hazelnut and butterscotch, created the landscape with layers of torn paper and stamped on some more trees which are Art Impressions, Hobby Art sheep which I coloured with a white fine tip marker, hand drawn fence and some foreground foliage with Inkylicious stamps.

Thanks for popping by and have a good Wednesday.

  9. A really beautiful scene Brenda.
    It sounds like your weather is very similar to ours. I'm hoping there will be another burst of sunshine before too long.
