Patchwork Sunrise

Hi Folks, I had a lot of fun creating this 'patchwork' sample with the new Patchwork Landscape stamp set from Chocolate Baroque The stamps are such great designs, and just encourage lots of colour.

I stamped the main image, and then masked this off, by stamping the image again onto masking paper, and covering the main areas. I then covered sections of the background with sheets of paper, just leaving a segment uncovered, which I coloured with Pan Pastels. I stamped across the section with a stamp from various texture stamp plates, Abstract Fragments Nature Fragments and Texture Fragments using Versamark, and then I covered the Versamark with Pan Pastel again. I moved around the page, completing a segment at a time, covering over any finished area to keep it protected. Once I was finished, I added hand drawn pen lines to resemble stitching. I coloured the central image with Inktense pencils, blending the colours with a waterbrush. I added a sentiment from the stamp sheet. Finally, I made some small flowers from handmade paper to resemble the Hollyhocks on the stamp plate, and added some black buttons to the centre. A die cut flourish completes the card.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Terrific the way the eye is drawn into the patchwork trees by the way you've created the background. The use of the various fragments stamp sets is very effective especially by using PanPastels on them to contrast with the brightness of the Inktense pencils. The echoing of the hollyhocks in the image by your embellishing works beautifully too.
