October postcards

 October postcards for the Chocolate Baroque potpourri challenge - had to use the colour this month which was heather, and this is what I eventually came up with. Have to admit that I spent a  lot of time searching for two particular stamps that I still haven't found in the disaster area that is officially my daughter's bedroom - even more disaster than normal as a good part of the contents went to a WI craft day, and still haven't made it back to their allotted homes....

Fast running out of time, I  decided to make landscapes using the terrific treescapes set of clear stamps (these seem to be no longer available, which is a great pity as there are some very useful trees there), the now traditional torn paper and brushes and sponges.  Inks used were victorian velvet, milled lavender and dusty concorde distress inks and Stampin Up concorde crush.

These would also seem to fit the challenge 167 at addicted to stamps and more, which is make your mark.

thanks Judith and Lesley for letting me know that the stamps will be back on the website soon - just out of stock at the moment!  Look out  for terrific treescapes, CBCL 0009


  1. These are gorgeous Vronnie! Beautiful colours and very atmospheric landscapes you created. I agree it's a shame if the stamps are no get available.

  5. Your monochromatic landscape is so lovely,Veronica. The different sun orientations and shading are perfect. Thanks for sharing this with us at ATSM this week.

  6. My goodness, this looks more like a painting than stamping. I love the monochromatic colour, makes for such a serene scene. Its an amazing card and I'm so glad you shared it with us at ATSM this week!
