Black and White Inspirations

Today I was so inspired that I spent all day in my craftroom for Stamp Therapy. I made 13 scenic scenes today.  Here are just a few:             

This is a black and white photo that I took last week. The ice was breaking up from the lake gave me the inspiration for this scene in black and white. 
This is a composition I created for my first Craft A Scene Challenge. I recreated the scene again just with vellum and black ink. It really gives you a different perspective. I really love the absence of color.

Here is another composition I created with vellum and black ink

This is my scene I created for the challenge at Craft A Scene called Down On The Farm.
The scene is created with Stampscapes stamps and the geese are from Art impression.
My goal was to make a simplistic and clean scene with the absence of color. I really love how black and white images emphasises the depth, contrast and shadows in the images. You can really appreciate the details in the stamps~Enjoy!


  1. What a great day! Love your creations. Hope to see more.

  2. Love the cabin with fence, Aileen

  3. What a good day! Great sceneries! Love the second and third best, just because I don´t see the water ever like in your first... They all are so great! warm greetings, Gerrina

  4. I love your inspiration photos Deanna, and the black and white scenes are stunning. I would not have guessed that they were done on vellum. Again I love the your "Down on the farm" entry, it looks so good in the monotone colours. Thanks for taking part in Craft A Scene.
