Modern colours for a traditional scene


I really love this stamp from Stamposaurus and decided to go for a clean and simple look with modern colours. The image has been coloured with Copics with added sparkle from Sakura pens. The sentiment comes with the stamp. I simply added some faux stitching with a fineliner pen to keep the emphasis on the gorgeous image.

Today I have had a very early start as I am at the quarterly craft fair at the hospital which is usually a good one. It was going to be my last fair this year but I was asked to do another one next Sunday 14th in aid of Air Ambulance so I though well why not. I will be back to link up this evening.

This truly is a unique and stunning card! I love your take on a modern feel, yet it reminded me traditional stained glass, which I love. The bright colors are so energetic and I really like how you paired them with the different components of the scene. This is not just a card; it's art! Thank you so much for the inspiration and for sharing your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
