Artistic Outpost Introduces Jane's Countryside

This will be a somewhat lengthy post today, but I hope you'll read through it. There's lots of good information including new stamps, a fabulous sale, and a great challenge.

A wonderful new set of stamps is being released today from Artistic Outpost. The sheet is called Jane's Countryside and is available both unmounted or mounted on EZMount.
Jane's Countryside is Artistic Outpost's homage to Jane Austen, and the tortured romantic tales that she told in her timeless novels, such as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma. This collection features Edwardian ladies dressed in their finery, original quotes from Jane herself, and a regal manor that could have served as the Austen family home.  Coordinating elements include a cameo, key, and a lacey ATC sized background.

Isn't she beautiful standing in front of her regal manor in her elegant clothes? I used CI paints to color the image. I wanted the vivid color against the bright vintage background paper. Because the stamps are unmounted, I was able to curve the sentiment around the bottom of the image oval.

Please visit the other Design Team members to see what they have created with this wonderful stamp set. Gerrie Johnnic, Lisa Somerville, Judy Hayes, Lynn Stevens, Stephanie Severin, Suzanne Czosek
