My apologies to my teamies at Craft a Scene challenge, this should have posted yesterday, but was one of the posts Blogger managed to lose in his enforced interface changeover and coupled with the events of Friday into Saturday I failed to realise it was missing.
I know these things ease with time, but at the moment there is a huge void and lots of tears. I know we have other lovable dogs, but they are all young and playful and yet to develop the art of real companionship, it takes a long while to gain the perception to give a wag of the tail and a raised paw in response to the wave of a hand as Buffy always did.
So at last the cards I made a few weeks ago for my mid month DT post where we have the theme of 'Trees' and it will come as no surprise that I really enjoyed this one and didn't have a lack of ideas.
The top card uses a mixture of Art Impression, Creative Expressions and Stamp Addicts images. Sponging masking and inking as usual and some poppies in the foreground to add a little colour.
My second card was one that came to me in the middle of the night when I was thinking about crafting.......... as you do..............and it occurred to me that a very old A Stamp in the Hand image might work with the Stampscapes mountain range and I'm actually quite pleased how it turned out. The colour is sponged on with Adirondack inks and the little guy in the water fishing is also a Stapscapes image. The pinecones were made using a Tim Holts Alterations die, I'm not sure if it's a new one but I saw it the other week and had to have it. They don't show up too well on the picture above so here's a close up of them, I know it doesn't take a lot to please me, but I think they're really cool.
Thanks for taking a peek and if you have not already joined in our challenge this month or if you've never tried making a scene before, then now must be the time and look forward to seeing you there.
