ex rubbish pile

This is one from the rubbish pile after a rescue session! The inky marks got covered up with more ink, so quite a bit bigger 'scene' as a background to the Stampin up boat stamp - I stamped the boat again on white card and cut the sails out, then pieced them over the original image.

  6. This is lovely Veronica, I often mask the sails to keep them white when sponging a background for this image.
    Your scene is simply super once more.
    Thanks again.

  8. Veronica you are so clever with these little scenes. The colours are stunning and you've made a little work of art that would look lovely framed.
