A couple of little scenes

My Brother-in-Law celebrated his birthday recently and it was the perfect opportunity to use my new inkylicious stamps, Reflections-Black Forest and Mini branches twigs. You can find them on the recently added pages of the Inkylicious website. All stamps are from Inkylicious. I dusted with memento tuxedo black, dandelion and canteloupe inks and Fossilised Amber Distress ink. Final touched were added with a white and a stardust clear sakura pen. 
 My second card is the one that I made Steve for our wedding anniversary, This lovely harbour scene is a hobby Art Rubber cling stamp I simply stamped using my big and juicy waterfall pad and then spread some colour using a waterbrush. I then added some fossilised amber DI for the beach and roof tops. The background is old wood floor from inkylicious, stamped in memento rich cocoa and dusted with tea dye DI. The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse.
This does remind me of places along the Yorkshire coast, like Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay...Where does it remind you of? Well we finally broke up from School on Tuesday and I have been busy finishing a magazine commission since then. As this was christmas themed I have decided to not join in with Rudolf day this month and do extra for next month. My head is definitely not in Christmas mode, lol! I now intend having some serious R&R for a couple of weeks, which will definitely involve visiting some blogs and some crafting and colouring.
Thanks for looking!

Two gorgeous cards Sally, I especially like the anniversary card, it really looks like you've mounted that onto a piece of old wood.

Hi Sally,
2 wonderful cards and so perfectly created.
I really like both of them they are so wonderfully inked, and designed.
The second card has that wonderfully made wood background which is awesome.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

These are two beautiful cards, Sally, and I'm not sure which one I like better. The second one actually reminds me of Devon where I visited some of the little villages along the coast many many years ago.
I wonder why the reflection stamp is called Black Forest. It's very beautiful, but it doesn't look like the Black Forest at all.

Both are such lovely scenes. I really like that first card. It speaks of upcoming autumn (feels very autumnal today, gray and chilly, but it's just a tease).
