As soon as I saw images in the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Power of Hope I was reminded of my childhood and her Willow Tree China. I was a very fussy eater and would only eat cheese sandwiches shaped as giraffes off the special blue plates at her house, bless her she made them for me every visit! So this one’s for you Grandma, thank you for indulging my childhood whims.
This is a very simple card using just Whisper White Thick cardstock as a base and Night of Navy cardstock and ink to create the image.
I used a Blender Pen to pull some of the ink off the outline of the chinese lady to give her dress a very slight blue colouring. The little bush in the corner was created with the top of the tree image. I stamped it once and it turned out not so good, so I just overstamped with the leftover ink on my stamp a few times to fill it in and I actually like how this turned out.
Are there any stamp sets which bring back happy childhood memories for you? I’d love to know all about them.
