I've managed to use another of Mo's delightful and as yet unused images, Not many to go now and I'll feel justified in buying more - yippee!! This week for the DP2 challenge it's an easel card.
This was an absolute dream to colour and I've used mixed media - both Copics and distress inks - just felt like experimenting yet again. The papers are Crafty Indiviuals bp - Trees. I cut the frame with the MS round the page double loops punch - at least I think that's what it called, and the sentiment with Spellbinders fancy tags. Now came the bit I really struggled with - embellishments. I don't usually over embellish Mo's images as I really think they speak for themselves. For this one I had out flowers, ribbon, pearls, flourishes, punches, corners - you name I had it out - nothing worked and I trashed my room yet again into the bargain. Then I remembered what an artist friend once told me "A truly gifted artist always knows when to STOP" - that definitely rules me out of the truly gifted status but I did take on board his words took everything off and looked - it didn't really need anything at all, but I couldn't resist adding a couple of flowers either side of the image.
Well I hope you're all having a great weekend and the weather is better where you are than it is here - it's not wet, it's not dry, it's no sunny, it's not dull, it's not warm. it's not cold - it's a NOTHING day!!
