Ciao Italia!

Scommetto che non sapevo mi poter parlare Italiano! Actually, I can't! Not even a coffee can be ordered in Italian.. however, Mr Google did assist me slightly with the above ROFL So, following on from my travels to Paris (artistically, sadly not literally as that would be fab wouldn't it, mooching around the Eiffel Tower, taking in the sights and eating lots of croissants... I digress) I have travelled to Italy today with some more of those gorgeous TJ Designs stamps. Now, I don't normally do travelly stuff but I have had a right ball with these stamps - did I mention that they are red rubber, already mounted and come in a cool storage folder which is like a DVD case?




For the background, I blended some Adirondack Dye inks onto card, the colours are Hazelnut, Pesto, Denim and then a bit of Espresso. The whole lot was spritzed with water to make a splodgy effect... and then I did some collage stamping and even remember how to do masking LOL The stamps at the top RH corner.. I couldn't resist using those *I am sooo childish aren't I??? Click the pic to see them larger and you will know exactly what I mean ROFL* All the stash used on the Journal cover is available from The Stamp Attic. Thanks for looking and have a goodly day - tis Bank Holiday here in England... what is the betting we have torrential rain!! ` :O)) TTFN

Love this Hels, the colours are just right, the blue and the terracotta remind me of Italy instantly. It's fabulous. I took a GCSE in Italian a few years ago, so it's never to late to learn the language! Judith xx

Great colours. Very apt for the make. Also love your crackle effect in the new CS mag.

Helen said...

I'd love to go to Italy - and Paris for that matter. Gorgeous art, as always Hels.

Buono Hels di mattina, questo stupisce ed amo i colori. Posso vedere dove la sua mente di scolara birichina andava con quelle statue anche. Ringraziarla così molto ancora una volta x
