life is beautiful

My piece of artwork today consists of stamps, inks, masking,
heat embossing and water colour pens.

I inked this background  a week ago for my 'stash box' so decided
to use up my stash and just add to it. Using a moon mask from
Clarity stamps I tried to create a dramatic effect in the sky
for the lion and bird. [RubberDance Stamps].
The sentiment was cut on the cameo and is from Love SVG cuts.

Fashionable Stamping has a new sponsor...Australian based, which is
fabulous as  I personally can now order awesome stamps here
in Australia..

Fantastic Annie! Very dramatic sky with your colour choice. The stamping is so crisp and a great composition too. I'm pleased you've found a good shop over there, it makes such a difference in cost when you don't have to buy from overseas. I keep seeing loads of things I want but there're from USA and I worry about custom charges if I order never mind the postage charges too. Debra x

It's not one layer but I think we can call it a flat design, still you've managed to add a feeling of dimension with your stamping, and the colors look amazing!
