The Great Outdoors

I love the stamp set that came with the latest issue of Creative Stamping!

This landscape is perfect for watercolouring. I stamped the sentiment before starting to paint, so I could be sure to leave it free. It's the first time I've tried to paint reflections so I found the stamp a really useful guide to where to pit them and how big they should be. I stamped the signpost onto a separate piece of paper and stamped the words on it before painting.

After adhering the image to the card, I stamped a meandering trail of footprints then fussy cut the sign and adhered it with Pinflair glue to give it dimension.

I generally try to use some of my older stamps for the challenges at Shopping Our Stash, but these stamps were just so perfect for the theme of The Great Outdoors that I absolutely HAD to use them!
