Chase Your Dreams by Stampin’ Up!
I absolutely love today’s cards using Chase Your Dreams by Stampin’ Up! I’ve been waiting for this set for a long time. Thank you SU! The stamp set features famous monument from 5 different cities around the world. I had the water colour pencils out (yes again! lol) and had the idea of painting the relevant country flag over the image. I had to have a few goes to get them right, except for the French flag which turned out great first time (in my humble opinion 😉)
First, of course, we have Tower Bridge, London, UK and the Union Jack/Flag. This was a tricky one but I think I got there in the end.
Then we hop across the channel to Paris, France and L’Arc de Triumph. Actually this one is my favourite. I love how the French flag turned out.
We move into Germany next and (I think/hope) Cologne Cathedral! (Updated 11/02/17 – actually I’ve been told it’s Neuschwanstein Castle! so I got it wrong oops! 😆) I had a few goes before I ended up with something I was happy with. If you have the black too dark it obliterates the image!
Next we cross the Atlantic heading into New York, USA with the Empire State Building! I should have started the American Flag a bit further down I think!
And finally we head down under to Sydney, Australia with the Sydney Opera House! I think this one was actually the hardest and I’m not entirely happy with the stars so don’t look too close, ok?
So what do you think? I certainly had fun making them. Originally I was thinking of leaving them as postcards but I decided I would rather send them out as cards!
Thanks for stopping by!
