colour splash

Play Date challenge 71 is for black, white and a colour - after rejecting several favourite stamps, I decided to use this image from a set of stamps by Carrie Dennison for Elusive Images as I thought that all it needed was a touch of green for the grass - I was very tempted to just add pale blues and make it a winter scene, but it was nice and sunny today!
The image was stamped with black Versafine, and coloured with watercolour pencils - backing strip is from the Essence of Nature cd by Glenda Waterworth


  1. Thats doesn't half show off Carrie's stamp beautifully! the green really makes it pop.

    You should send a photo to her. i know she'd love to see it.



  2. Ah, yes, it's good to see spring green instead of icy winter colors! THanks for playing with us at the Play Date CAfe!

  3. oh wow, this is amazing! I love how you've highlighted that image with such a beautiful shade of green. Thanks so much for playing along at The Cafe.

  4. I love your choice of green, it really looks striking against your black image, lovely! Thanks for joining in the fun over at the Play Date Cafe!

  5. Oh, that's lovely - really like the way you've used this design. :)
