Wednesday Stamper’s theme for this week – When I grow up! I thought this was such a fun theme. My card, which is about 5.5″ x 2.5″, is a mishmash of background layers – gesso over metallic oil pastels, watercolour washes and stamping.
The stamps are all from Home Impressions Cogs and Clocks plate. These cogs want to be clocks when they grow up! I used the single lomg hand stamp for the ‘grasses’ at the bottom. It’s a bit wacky/surreal, but was fun to do. The flower petals are punched from an old book and I used Sharpie Poster Paint pens for the highlights and a white Posca pen for the dots!
It’s so cold again at the moment, my brain doesn’t seem to be functioning at its best. I managed to get out today to pick up meds and go to the Post Office, and popped into the Gallery too. Bude was quite deserted and I even found a parking space outside the Library, where I returned my books and found a couple of good ‘uns to read, only to discover I’d left my Library card at home! Doh!
It was unsurprising, given the condition of our weather and the roads beyond town, that the library was closing at 4pm today – to enable staff to get home safely. Very sensible indeed, and I hope everyone did. Looks like we may get even more snow over the weekend too… Brrrr…!!
