Barn

This month I’m sharing the new “Barn” stamp! Oooh, I love it!!

Here I’ve stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa and sponged with Distess inks. I love sepia photos!

I also combined it with last month’s release, Find Beauty. The clouds are sponged using my homemade cloud template.Barn, North Coast Creations

It’s also cool in black and white! Of course I’ve made some colored versions too…but I’ll save those for another day!

I made this variety set for a silent auction donation. You can whip out a lot of these in no time!! Again I used more from last month, Heaven’s Masterpiece and Something Marvelous. I also used All Occasion Sentiments from Our Daily Bread designs.

This is gorgeous in the sepia and with the additional clouds as the background it really sets off the foreground. I just love this - too beautiful. Hugs, Jen :-) xx
