It’s an Optical Illusion!

Well class is still on and now it’s Optical Illusions and today I thought I would start with Scenic Stamping.  I promise I really did try and make it ‘more water coloury’ but it just wasn’t going to happen, I think it’s the branches are so dark that I had to add more colour to my girl so she didn’t get lost…   now we wouldn’t want that now would we?

  4. This is the best card posted in the gallery! The extra step of adding the leaves in the corner really creates a perception of depth. Great job!!

  6. Oh, what a GORGEOUS scene you’ve created, Therese! I love the images that you chose and your coloring is just beautiful! (don’t you just love Penny Black for this technique?). You get another A+ on your homework 🙂

  7. Ahhh … Paris in the springtime! Awesome scene, Therese … love how this elegant mademoiselle is leaning nonchalantly against the side of the card … tres chic! Anita 🙂
