TIO #135 - Night Riverbank

My teamie May is asking us to dream of the Night Riverbank this fortnight for the Dragons Dream - on your tag we'd like you to use boats, driftwood and insects.

I started by painting my tag with Paperartsy Fresco paint (Baltic Blue, then darkening the sky with French Roast which is a translucent brown).  I lightened the middle of the tag with some watered down Sky and Guacamole, to allow me to stamp my images on top.

My stamps are by Stampscapes (the riverbank) and Art Impressions (the boat, and the wooden groynes which are my driftwood - hope May allows that!!) I couldn't find any insect stamps small enough to be in scale so "drew" some fireflies in a copper gel pen.

Come over to Dragons Dream to check out the other DT art and please join in. You only need to follow the recipe on your tag and use at least one real stamp! It's easy.....!!

This is absolutely gorgeous Helen, love how you've used the fresco colours to create the background and of course your stamped images fit the theme perfectly.

Shall have to go away and have a think about what I could do!!
