Create a scene at Make My Monday

Good morning everybody - I hope the weekend has been a good one.

Now - I do not mean scream and shout when I say Create a Scene.  This is the third week of our Nature theme at  Make My Monday,  and we want to see a scene created.  There are some fabulous examples on the challenge blog, so please do pop along and have a browse.  I must admit I did struggle at first, but it's amazing what can be found in the stash when you are desperate for the right stamps.  However, as a result of this I also have another carrier bag full of stamps that I am going to sell.


I built my background with Pan Pastels - did I say I love these (!), and then used a variety of stamps from Elusive Images - now Chocolate Baroque.  I am now sure where the seat came from - it is very old and the writing is off the stamp.  All the images are stamped with archival ink.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Craft a Scene - Anything Goes
Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes
Pan Pastel Challenge - Anything Goes
Bloggers Challenge - Wings and Things
Alphabet Challenge Blog - Y - You can choose

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,

  2. This is really gorgeous Val. I love all the stamps you've used and of course, recognise most of them. I love the soft colours of the Pan Pastels which I haven't tried yet. Think I need to give them a go very soon. Oh dear, something else on the wise list, lol!

    Gorgeous card Val - haven't tried making a full scene - but you've inspired me to give it a go. Whether it'll be good enough to post is another matter!
