It is another day and another card today over at 365 Cards. Today's challenge is to put a sign on your card. You can use a stamp, patterned paper, or create a sign out of the card. I had this image in my head that I wanted to use but it not translate the way I wanted it too, to paper. I wanted it a lot murkier, darker, slimier etc. I, unfortunately could not put that on paper the way I saw it in my head. I was doing an early Halloween card even though we don't celebrate that over here in Australia I still love it. I love everything about it. Okay on with the details of my card. I masked a circle and shaded the night sky and then the rocks below in the swamp were the best colour I could get them. The water should have been a little darker too but what the heck there is always another day and another card!! Once again I used a stamp from my ancient stash from Stamp Impressions. I used The Timster's birds in flight from one of his sets. The Swamp Hollow sign I created myself and mounted it onto a toothpick which I coloured with Distress inks lightly. I almost wish I had a stamp of a zombie or some kind of monster coming out of the swamp, I guess that image will have to stay in my head for now. . .too many scary movies!!!
Well that's it for me today, I will catch you all on the roundabout tomorrow.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
