Alter the Look of a Scene Stamp

Hello friends!
If you follow my blog for some time, you know I like to tweak the look of stamps once in a while... 
This Wintry Trail is absolutely captivating and detailed.

Please note that this stamp was out of stock over Simon Says Stamp and is finally back in stock.
It is a perfect stamp fro making a wintery scene card.
However, I had an idea and decided to change the "scene" a little bit.

May sunshine and joy....

I added the sun after stamping and clear-embossing the background. I also added colors on the ground to reflect the warm glow from the sunshine.

Isn't it fun that we CAN alter the look of a stamp like this?
The stamp can do all the "talking"....

you can check out my previous You Tube video here and here.

Here is a side by side comparison with the stamp. You can see the 'transformation".

What a lovely addition to this stamp. I really like your sun and the reflected sun. I have a P.B. stamp -Down the lane- and boy am I having a hard time mastering this stamp. So...off to watch your video.
