A running stream, a shady tree, ferns, hills just make me think of relaxing. I tend to get drawn to any stamps which have images of scenery in them. Peaceful Place was no different.I just love the tranquility that this image evokes. It makes me think of sitting under that tree and enjoying a picnic. Wouldn’t you just love to sit a while and relax there?

Scenic card with Stampin' Up! Peaceful Place stamp set, water colours

For this card I did a lot of water colouring – sitting watching tv and crafting, adding layers of colour until I achieved the colours that I wanted. I enjoy colouring in so this was quite relaxing for me. I’ve been using Stampin’ Blends a lot and it was nice to change it up with Water Colours. 

Top Tip
Make sure you use Stazon ink (because it stays on)
when water colouring to ensure colours don’t run. 

I mixed Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point for the stream and the hills were coloured in Old Olive with touches of Bermuda Bay added for shading. The sentiment was heat embossed in White and mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Water coloured Peaceful Place stamp set on Shimmery White cardstock

Scenic stamps are a great way to bring out the artist in you. I am in no way good at drawing but I love colouring in and stamps like Peaceful Place work for me.
