Belinda's Charming Country Cottage-Sneak Peek1

Good Afternoon! I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my first neak peek of the newest brilliant works from the amazing Belinda Landtroop, owner and illustrator of Clear Artistic Stamps! She has truly outdone herself this time--with 2 new sets from the Cottage collection coming out very soon, our holidays are certain to be just a bit more merry and bright! I love the simple charm and warmth of this country cottage. With the coordinating Cottage Accessories set, the possibilities for creating delightful scenes are vast!
I chose to create a cozy winter scene here. Coloring this is such fun, especially with my favorite Prismacolor markers--the colors blend easily and I am able to achieve a nice look without much skill.

And take a gander at the very different look that ETHA created with the same sets! I just adore the blossom sprinkled branches that shade her lovely country scene. Just look at the depth she achieved by stamping the cottage further back and peppering the ground with little spring trees and rocks. It gives the feeling of a most lovely Spring in the country or in the mountains.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous Saturday doing whatever you do! I'll be sharing some more tomorrow. :)
