Sunday Stamps #299

Hello and happy new year to you!

My first card for 2023 is for Sunday Stamps and it's a very simple one with a very old and very used stamp set from Waltzingmouse - Asian Gardens:

I managed to get almost all the colours on there using distress inks, although a lot brighter than those in the pic! The neutral Antique Linen didn't blend too well with the Wild Honey...I do find I get a lazy when it comes to blending DI and never seem to get a perfectly blended look. Like watercolouring it's a source of inky frustration!

Hope you all have a happy and healthy 2023!



  1. Oh my goodness, how pretty! Love the stamped image over the blended background. Thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps, hope to see you again soon!

  2. Wow, Claire, love this! I'm a huge fan of black over glorious sponged color - your shading is really lovely! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  3. What a beautiful card for our color combo...I love silhouette cards!! Thanks for joining the fun and playing along with our "Shades of Winter" color challenge at Sunday Stamps.
