Jelly belly and a stormy sky




Good Morning, it's a wee bit blustery here and a coat colder, we had a minus 4 frost again which goes against the grain of what the weather men forecast.

I am still waiting for my test results, but we are close to the ten days they said and my tummy turns to jelly every time there is a phone call for me. I just hope they don't keep me waiting much longer because I just can't concentrate and everything I try and create ends up in the bin at the moment, so this is a share of a sample card I did for Stampalot a couple of weeks ago using the Andy Skinner A Winters Tale set.

I stamped the tree with black archival ink and brayered another in reverse for the reflection in the water................this tree is really a bit big for that technique I think as the water looks to be a bit excessive to me. Next I sponged Adirondack eggplant and sunset orange and TH tumbled glass and finally stamped Art Impression worker stamps along the shoreline.

Have a good day everyone and thank's for dropping by.

I hope it won't be much longer for you to wait. Love that pink sun & the dark sky & your use of the worker stamps too. I think the water is fine - sometimes it's useful to have a larger expanse & this really provides a sense of distance beauitifully.

Lovely idea and you are being so generous again. I suspect that if you planted the tree further back so that just the canopy is reflected you would prefer the result! sorry just one of my little thoughts.

Its the week-end so you can relax now if the phone rings and take heart the longer the wait the better in these circumstances XOXO Zoe

ma-mi said...
