As you’ve seen we really love our Scenic Serenity stamp line. Besides Fran’s Painting with Powder Technique, we’ve really enjoyed using them with the Copic markers. Here’s a sample using the N227 Villa Scene Stamp with Copics in a unique way beyond just imitating a watercolored look. Here Fran has used short lines to create a more abstract background emphasizing the lines and shapes in the artwork. They are perfect for cards or even framing and hanging on the wall! We hope you’re having as much fun with these beautiful scenes as we are!
Copic markers used: Y04 Acacia, Y35 Maize, YG93 Grayish Yellow, G94 Grayish Olive, E97 Deep Orange, E99 Baked Clay, R08 Vermillion, B52 Soft Greenish Blue, B91 Pale Grayish Blue
We just know you’re going to fall in love with our new Scenic Serenity Stamp series just like one of our favorite designers Kimberly Crawford did. We made these stamps in a smaller size several years ago and while we loved the designs, inspired by Fran’s 2005 trip to Italy, we were frustrated with coloring in the too small spaces. Since they came out Fran has wanted to make these designs larger, and as she developed her Painting with Powder™ Technique she took the opportunity to enlarge them.
Just look at them now! WOW! We’re all dreaming of trips to Italy as we play with these beauties in so many ways! We took some of them to Kimberly at CHA and asked her to do her Copic magic with them and oooolala!!! She has posted some incredible samples on her blog today, and she sent us this other beautiful card. What a fabulous job! Now we love them more than ever! Look out Tuscany, the Stampendous team is dusting off our passports!
