Bountiful Berries.......

Another challenge quickie. I'm glad I made this yesterday, as I've been up all night listening to the radio as some of the rioting was happening in the next town to me and I couldn't turn off. I don't think I could have made such a serene image today. I hope all of you and yours are safe.

I'm entering this for the Tag it on Natures Bounty challenge. I adore this new stamp from La Blanche and will try not to bore you with endless projects which include it! Along with the stamp I received a beautiful brochure from La Blanche with their stamps and step by step projects. Although it is in German, I can't stop staring at it as it is so stunning, and because of the step by steps it doesn't really matter that I don't understand a word!
The blackberries are from Sheena Douglass paint fushion range, but [as with the sunflowers I posted on Saturday,] I have painted them with Distress inks. The colours were inspired by Sheenas card in Septembers issue of Craft Stamper, but I've done a much softer version to give a vintage feel.

                                                        Hope you enjoyed making your entry.

  1. Corr... this is really beautiful... you say you can't stop like Elizabeth, but you DID!! you stopped when it was perfection!!

  2. Beautiful tag and colours. Take care and stay safe while those idiots are rioting! You asked about ceramic paper. It is from LaBlache and in England they have it under the name *Speciality stamping paper* by Sir Stampalot! Valerie

  3. Superb tag. Lovely colouring, composition and an overall feeling of sublime late summer. Thank you for sharing with us at TIO.
