Two today!

Good afternoon, peeps!

Well, wor Sheena's shows are getting very close now with the first one being tomorrow at 9.00 a.m.  so I thought I'd show you two cards today and they show two differing ways of using the elk stamp (at least I think it's an elk!).  This one shows the magnificent beast painted with the Aquatints then cut out and mounted on Collall 3D Glue Gel, as are the ferns also (from the Optimism plate).  The background is created with the Aquatints using the salt technique on Watercolour card.

On this card the elk is just a silhouette because I've painted over the image with Black Gesso.

He's standing on rocks made with torn black card and I've used the Silver Aquatint from the Essentials set to create highlights on the elk and the rocks from the effect of the Northern Lights.  The other image is from the Sheltering Tree plate.

Thank you for looking today.



  1. Such fabulous creations Diane.

  2. Love these and the effects you have got for those backgrounds. I can see I need to attend one of your classes. I was mesmerised by the first one but then the second one blew me away. Beautiful!
    Hugs, Neet xx
