Hi blogging friends
I did actually add a few extra lines/squiggles with a fine .005 waterproof black pen to widen the scene at the horizon and a little bit around the river bank here and there because once I trimmed the scene down, it had little blank areas that looked unfinished which didn't reach the edges of the watercolour paper. I was so tempted to draw in a few cows or a bird but thought better of it in case I made a mess of it.
I have to say that when I ordered this stamp on-line, I didn't realise how HUGE it was until it arrived! Oh my gosh - it's massive! I bought it unmounted and I struggled to find a stamp block large enough to fit all the design on - so my card is definitely NOT your average-sized card by the time I added the designer paper and cardstock borders. Just as well I am not posting it in the mail - I would be paying extra-postage that's for sure LOL!
