Stamping a sketch

This week Simon Says ...use Domis' sketch. I've been playing with some Crafty Individuals stamps and distress inks that I got for Christmas, and thought it would be fun to paint the whole sketch with ink and stamps.

"Sail on to calmer waters"

The birds are from a Tim Holtz' stamp set. The inks are all distress inks, and colouring was by foam and brush.


This second version has a slightly more dramatic colour scheme.

Entered for the following challenge:

We are just back from a very disappointing shopping trip to Dunelm.....the supposed "Sale" was rubbish! I came away with way too much of the Christmas money in my pocket! Lee x
