A fenland meadow



Morning to you all, hope your week is going well. Thanks you for all you kind comments on my Parisian scene on Monday and also welcome to my new followers.

I thought I would share the birthday card I made for hubby, I did think it had already been blogged but seems not so here it is. I started by stamping the trees with black archival ink, the large one is Creative Expressions and the small one Stampscapes, then created the background with Pan Pastels and finished by stamping the Sutter Stamps fence, Hobbyart sheep, birds and branches adding a little watercolour here and there to highlight. The sheep stamp is a long one with six on it but they are all in a bit of a row so I ink the stamp in sections to give a more random look. I then rub out the Pan Pastels..............that's the great thing about them....... and add a little white micron pen to lift them.

Hope you all have a good Wednesday.

  1. What a lovely card Brenda, looks just like when the mist is lifting. I don't know about you but our grass is really sparse this year (helpful for my laminitic) thank goodness we don't make any hay! Have a good day x

  4. Hi Brenda...I bet hubby loved his card! My favourite thing with PP is that you can rub it out so easily too. This is such a peaceful scene Brenda. Very relaxed.

  5. A gorgeous scene Brenda. I bet your hubby was chuffed to bits to get this. I'm going to trawl back to your earlier post regarding the up and coming changes to blogger. It made sense at the time but of course - it didn't stick. Lots of weird things happening at the moment.

  16. The fact that you rearrange the sheep is delightful & the whole scene you created so evocative of the rural English scenery. I love the multiple greens of the trees & your branches peeking into the picture's view.

  38. BAA-utiful, Brenda! :D

    Love how realistic the trees and sky looks and the sheep!

    Are you familiar with Donna Downey? she does a lot of stuff with panpastels... I've just signed up for a few mixed technique and product classes she is doing here in Australia in September up in Brisbane. Its good to have something to look forward to and be excited about! :-)

  45. A lovely scene. Makes me homesick tho. Living here in Cyprus you don't see sheep grazing in the fields. We have the wild Mouflon but they are shy creatures and rarely seen....bit like the deer in Scotland. Thank you for allowing me to remenise (sp. lol)
