Mmmm … I ended my last post with ‘I’ll be back later’ … that was Sunday afternoon and we’re now Tuesday evening so it is much much later! I think this is version four or five for LIM this week, where the theme is a sketch (above) … I really can’t say why this challenge was such a … um … challenge … it just was and I suppose that’s why they’re so named. Good thing really as it has been a bit stretching!
Anyhow, I finally settled on the dandelion clock in the breeze, losing some of it’s seeds … and turned the sketch 90 degrees because the images just seemed to look better that way (I tried both options). The original stamp is the middle image and I played with the two either side to get the views that showed it before and after, and then inked the edges. The only other addition is the cream organza ribbon … I thought it went rather well with the grey dandelion … the look I wanted was delicate and soft. I’m not convinced that I achieved it … it looks a bit naked and stark in the photograph … p’raps I’ve done enough monochromatic and neutral colour schemes for a while … need some colour!
This is what I used: Cardstock: Docrafts, Crafter’s Companion, Stamp: Personal Impressions, Ink: Memento, Ribbon: Stash
And now a big warm bienvenue and welcome to two lovely new Froggers (blog friends … see the last post for a bit of a rambling definition!) … Marie in Greece at http://baileyrosy.com/ and Karen in the UK at http://serendipitydragonfly.blogspot.co.uk/ Thank you for your warm welcome to blogworld ladies … I’m so pleased to be sharing the journey with you 🙂 If you haven’t already come across Marie and Karen before, have a look at their fabulous blogs … I’m sure they will inspire you as they did me!
Finally for tonight, a quiet thought for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy across the Eastern USA and Canada … I know many are still without power and won’t be reading this, but for those who are, I hope you and your families have stayed safe.
Thanks for visiting … Anita
