I stamped a tulip, and coloured it up in distress inks, and then I pondered and speculated what to do with it.
I checked out Frilly and Funkies challenge as there is always something interesting going on over there........ willing them to inspire me.
And surprise Sue has set a challenge : ' Follow your muse' so with Tulip in hand, I let go of my reticence and just went with layers, as I always think layers, texture and colour; I love colour, and amazingly and with no surprise, I come out with a kind of Shabby, Vintage mix in design.
I played around with my watercolours the last few weeks, this Bg is one of them, so I embossed it, and found a G45 pre cut Oval, added that.
The heart is another of my musings that has been lying on the desk, I also attached a flourish, by now I was on a roll!
Rosie (Hey There Rosigirl!) sent me some white crinkly seam-binding, which I was itching to use, so I inked it up to match the Tulip head, instantly movement is created.
If you look closely you will also notice a torn strip, inked and textured sitting behind the heart.
See the eye, it is an alarming contradiction to the Shabby
Chic feel, and I don't know if it is also rather intimidating, why did I
emphasised it by placing some bling around it.
I am thinking at this moment what this actually symbolises; a state of confusion perhaps, well that comes as no surprise to me!
But on the other hand it could also denote I have a keen eye..... Ha! perhaps I am stretching the allegorical illustration a bit.
I all over the place with my designs at the moment, I think this card is a great example of where I am ....sitting in a worm hole!
Start of a new week, hope it is a good one and if I have not mentioned lately thanks for visiting.
