Streets of Old

Morning everyone

Hope you all have a lovely day

I'm excited to share more samples for the brand new Eureka Picture Perfect Postcards collection of stamps, tools and dies being released today on c&c by
Stamps By Me 

Stunning hand drawn scenes that can be watercoloured or used in a more contemporary way.

Today's samples are using the very beautiful and quaint
Streets of Old stamp set

Also used:
Cross Stitch Frame die
With Love Tags 2 die
Wildflower stamps
Newspaper Cuttings stamp
Distress Oxides
Distress Inks

I used Walnut Stain DI to "age" a photo frame, then painted a layer of Mod Podge to set it.
Fossilized Amber DO was blended onto some card and the Newspaper Cuttings stamped randomly in Brushed Corduroy DI
The Streets of Old were stamped in Walnut Stain DI and the ink dragged with a water brush, to emphasise the darker areas

The Streets of Old were stamped onto cream card, in Brushed Corduroy DI and the ink dragged with a water brush
The Wildflower 4 & 5 were stamped in a mixture of Peeled Paint and Fossilized Amber DO and Brushed Corduroy DI

The background was created using Worn Lipstick, Iced Spruce and Fossilized Amber DO. These were applied to a glass mat, spritzed with water and the card dragged through the inks
The Streets of Old were stamped in Brushed Corduroy DI and the knk dragged into the shadow with a water brush
The Cross Stitch die was used to frame the stamped image
The sentiment die is from With Love Tags 2 die set

I hope you like this beautiful image as much as I do.

Many thanks for popping by and I'll be back tomorrow with a few more samples
