Sunset in the Fens

Good Afternoon peeps.

Is Blogger having a hissy fit this week or what and I know I am not alone, dashboards missing, comments being eaten and so it goes on, a real pain in the derriere.

Just a few more Stampalot samples to share, hope nobody minds that the content of my posts are still short, but the improvement with the eyes remains slow, so it's still a step at a time as far as the love affair with the computer goes.

The card above is masked and brayered with Adirondack sunset yellow and orange, some shading across the bottom and then stamped with Hero Arts S5316. I just love the vivid colours and reminds me of sunset here in the Fens at harvest time.

Here I did some masking round the edges, shaded with TH antique linen, then stamped with Hero Arts music background and next Penny Black 3239K using TH barn door and embossed with detail clear. The flower was made using TH tattered floral die.


My final share is brayered with Adirondack purple and sponged with butterscotch. The sentiment is Penny Black 3195H and the cherry blossom is a Sheen Douglas stamp.

These are all just gorgeous Brenda and I especially love your sunset one as the colours are so beautiful.
Blogger did funny things to me too including changing my name (weird!) and saying I didn't have a blog so I think everyone has been driven a bit crazy.
Hugs, Fliss xx

oh Brenda, what stunning cards! I've been trying to resist that gorgeous Hero Arts stamp for ages but i'm definitely weakening now i've seen your beautiful sunset lol.
I'm glad to hear your eyes are improving but sorry to hear its slow progress. Mr Blogger is having some fun and games with us all by the sounds of it
take care of yourself

Love the first one - a real stunner with the black matting too. I love the purples in the final one & the different depths of colour in the middle one. Take care with the computer.

Oh dear - you are right Brenda, Blogger has been a real pain this last two days. I know I already commented on this beautiful Sunset in the Fens card, but I know how annoying it is to loose all the comments, so here I am again, to tell you it is still a fabulous card!! In fact, all three are!

Ah B., have not popped in for a while but your cards still leave me gob-smacked, Have been crook and have been snowed in with things and not much time for peeping at others blogs, so love these card all three of them and yes! Blogger has been gross this week I lost one post cos it would not save it and was only grateful I had done it in word doc first often do it these days cos of it being a pain.. thanks for sharing, Shaz in Oz.x

Rufus said...

Oh yes, Mr Blogger has been throwing a royal fit this week, hasn't he! I'm typing fast in case he decides to take off again. Love 'em all...but the first one is just lovely!!! Glad to hear that there is improvement to the eyes, even if it is slow.
