If You Go Down To The Woods Today

Hello Everyone
Recently I shared with you stamp news from Darkroom Door, the release of the new Line Art stamps and also some new additions to the Texture Stamp line.
Amongst the stamp goodies I received was a Leafy Lady stamp, this is from the new Line Art stamp line.
Darkroom Door stamps used:-
Line Art – Leafy Lady
Texture Stamps:- Splatters and Flourish
Wilderness Vol 1

So this is my Darkroom Door sample using the Leafy Lady.
This stamp conjured images of The Green Man, so with thoughts of that in my head, I gathered elements that had a natural feeling to them.
22 July 412Knowing I wouldn’t be colouring/painting the stamp I was unsure what to stamp her onto, then it struck me.  I had a beautiful piece of handmade paper with gorgeous flecks of gold and silver which my lovely friend Nicola had sent to me.  It was all the more perfect as it produced the lovely feathered edging once I tore around the stamped image.photothreeObviously I wanted to incorporate some of the new Texture Stamps I also received so here I used the Splatters (this is a stamp I know I will reach for time and again) and the elegant Flourish was stamped onto waxy paper.22 July 411A rustic gathering of wood, raffia and jute.detail5Thank You so much for your visit to my Blog not only for this post but previous posts especially during any of my absences.

    Leafy Lady also looks like she could have been at Woodstock or 1967 San Francisco.

    Beautiful! She reminds me of the face of Biba shops; “bright faces and round dolly eyes”.

    I am so fascinated by the Green Man and this is a wonderful interpretation of it. I love what you have done with that stamp and the beautiful, handmade paper along with the other fantastic elements. This is a wonderful, natural creation with your stamp all over it (sorry for the unintended pun!) Julie Ann xxx

    The wonderful handmade paper really enhances the beautiful face and I love the natural feel you have given her by feathering the edges and adding the waxy paper. That splatter stamp looks like a must have now…. sigh. A really wonderful piece Lynne! Hugs, Anne xx
