Stamp Connection # 7

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our fifth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements :

And I choose to imitate a famous piece of art



I am sure you have seen this before - it is by René Magritte and is called The Empire of Lights (L'Empire des lumières). I love this painting and ever since Shirley Bampton did her little series on recreating art work with stamps I wanted to make this. 
 
 
All my  supplies are by STAMPlorations, including the cloud stencil. It took me forever to make this - I'll keep it short - lots of masking and sponging. Next time I'll pick an easier topic, ha!






Linking up with 
Virginia's view  - all things colored

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy stamping

Girlfriend, you nailed this one. I don't know how long it took, but it was soooo worth it. You've included everything from Magritte's painting (which, by the way, is one of my favorites, too). Really captured the light and the serenity of it. Just beautiful, you talented woman.

Magritte is one of my favourite artists, not everyone's cup of tea but my 8-9yr olds had fabulous fun recreating some of his artwork, especially the ones based on faces in the landscape!
Happy days. :)

That had to take a long time! So many details like that sky, the reflection, and the trees! Your houses are so inviting!

SonjaK said...

Großartig! Die Szene ist so wunderbar gestempelt und koloriert. Ich bin ganz hin und weg. Ich wünsche dir weiterhin gute Besserung.

Susanne Vargas said...

Das Bild von Magritte kannte ich gar nicht! Das hast du toll nachgestempelt!
Denke weiterhin an dich und hoffe, die Bücherei hat immer noch books on tape, die du noch nicht angehört hast...!

This is absolutely stunning, Cornelia! I love the dimension you've achieved in the clouds, and the reflection is fantastic. Houses never looked better ;) Hope you're recovering well.
