Hello beautiful people! We are back with an all-new image today that combines the historic symbolism of two glorious plants in an image that has a masculine look with a bit of whimsy.
Whether admired on the branch while gazing upward, scooped up into giant piles with a rake, or spotted on the ground, plucked, and pressed into a book for safekeeping, the oak leaf is a symbol of strength, endurance, and stability. I’ve drawn leaves with sweetly capped little acorns that will one day grow up to be mighty oaks themselves. And then, to see just how far I can stretch our imaginations, I’ve paired the oak with branches of another tree that isn’t likely to show up in the same forest, as it is native to a more Mediterranean climate: the olive.
Olive branches — known since Biblical times as a symbol for peace — have their juicy fruits clustered between the leaves. Olive and Oak, joining forces with a message of peace and strength, is an image I hope you’ll turn to again and again.
This digital Olive and Oak stamp set can be colored in so many ways — from full fall splendor to pale greens and golds and grey-blues, to monochromatic browns... it’s up to you to bring out the best in this drawing and make it your own.
I have to laugh ... I hadn’t realized that not too long ago I introduced another set, Ranunculus, with a single-line sentiment that is also “sending peace”. Can anybody tell that I am in the mood to get some peaceful vibes out into the universe?
Today I have the great honor of introducing the hardest working digi team in show business. These women put so much thought, care, and time into their creations to share with you!! I know their Olive and Oak posts are going to wow you, especially those of you who are into no-line coloring. I mean, mama mia! These are some inspiring cards...
