Have been very busy so absent from blogland for a while, though I've been having the odd late night catch-up with my favourites. I have had a go at the latest RSS challenge - I did actually make cards for the last two but never got round to posting them. I've included them here in case anyone is interested! The challenge this time is:
So anyway, here is my entry for this one. The base card is cream and has been stamped with Basic Grey cobweb stamps in suitable shades of Distress inks. Using the same inks, I swooshed them onto glossy card and overstamped it with Elusive Images "Nature's Peace" stamps. The tree in the centre has had little pearls added, which have been coloured with a gold Promarker pen. The hazelnuts (or maybe they are chestnuts?) were also coloured with Promarkers then glazed with Crystal Lacquer. "Autumn" was mounted onto a piece of brown fabric with staples - I'm not quite sure whether it's hessian or a rather open canvas so I hope it will do. The central panel was matted onto brown card and the right hand one onto a patterned ochre paper.
These are the cards that never got entered onto the challenge - ran out of time I guess! Looking at them all together, I realise that I have no consistency at all! They are all different and there's nothing to make them recognisable as mine. I'm sure that's not good - the work of designers I admire are usually instantly recognisable as theirs! I'll think I'll have to try and come up with something ....
