Good Morning All
It is cold and wet here in Auckland.
I have turned myself completely away from Loud Yellow (my last creation), to the soft muted tones of warm and cool shades, almost 'dusky' with this card.
This is more me, but I like to break out wildly on times!!!! even though the results are not always to my liking, it extends me, and stops me from becoming bored.
My close friend returned from a trip in Europe, and this is the stamp she bought for me as a gift, she knew exactly what I would like, it is gorgeous.
The image lends itself to a CAS card, but naturally my instinct is to embellish I can't help myself, even though I know it can hold it's own on one layer.
Rosie, you would make a wonderful card with this image.
It is called 'wild rose' from Personal Impressions and I coloured it up with my Marvy pens using the thumping technique, I paper-pieced a few leaves to create some interest, it turned out wonderfully after a few practise runs!!!! I will admit to a disaster or two!
But I had fun and enjoyed the feeling of the 'unknown' it is always a surprise with this technique, there is apprehension and excitement when you lift the stamp off the CS and you uncover what was hidden. There could be a high degree of gratification or there could be a high degree of disappointment, but this is the fun part, you get to know what works and you learn!
