Two for the Price of One!

A few weeks ago I spotted the Indigo Blu giant peony stamp on offer in a craft shop so I couldn’t resist it. But of course, the stamp really is giant so it’s very difficult to fit it on one card, hence the idea of cutting the finished stamped, watercoloured image into two. I will admit to being a little nervous as I made the chop, having spent quite a long time painting it!

Anyway, the resulting cards are shown below. I’m entering them (as separate entries, if I can) into the Watercolour challenge at Addicted to Stamps and the inaugural challenge at the Flower Challenge.

  3. It’s beautiful! I am exactly the same, I find it so hard to chop an image in half, but the results are stunning – I personally believe only seeing part of an image really enhances it, and gives a much better overall design to the card. Thank you for playing along in the challenge, and we hope to see you again soon, Lisa DT xx

  4. Gorgeous cards, love the silver embossing and the beautiful coloring on both cards.
    I must admit that sometimes I stop myself from buying large stamps for the same reason, but you did an amazing job with yours, making two cards with the same image.
    Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE debut post, hope you join us again next time.

  6. I don’t blame you for grabbing this stamp, the image is stunning and looks exactly like a peony I have in my garden right now!! Love the silver embossing with the pink and the flower definitely is the star. So glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge!
