It Is A Good Drying Day

Good morning all, 
Thanks so much for popping in. 
Today I have another sample to share with you using stamps from  the new release. 
Not long now. 
Only 2 sleeps. 


As soon as I saw the new Moulted wings I could just picture them hanging out to dry. 
So I set about trying to create what was in my mind. 

This is what I did.


I started by stamping the new English Bluebell stamps.
I thought these would make great end posts for my washing line. 


Next I added the washing line with a fine liner pen…oh and not so steady hand. 
I stamped the wings. 



Then I added the landscape and sky…
I was looking for a moody sky. 
We have had the most amazing skies recently.
This was yesterday morning whilst I was walking Eric. 
I really do get so much inspiration from nature. 



To build up the scene I added some more bluebells.




Followed by some ink blending and water splats to frame the design. 



The  wings needed some colour so I painted them using ink and mica minerals with water. 


I also added some splats of this to give a shimmery, magical feel to the design. 


For the finishing touches I used gel pens and chalk pastel pencils. 
Plus some Orchard grass along the front, just to add some detail in the foreground. 
Then finally I added a touch of the Bell Flower Vine stamp along the top of the design. 
All these finishing touches help to complete the whole look of the piece. 




This is just what I had imagined, 
and I thoroughly enjoyed creating it. 

These new stamps have so many possibilities.
Just let you imagination flow. 

Take care all 
Much love and hugs 
Jo xxxx

  1. Fabulous and so creative Jo. I love the bluebells and the bell flower vine. Luckily for me I don’t want the frogs, beavers or boats or I think I would be bankrupt .. but there are so many flowers, foliage and trees I want! Xx
