Enter the dragon!

I suppose this is a product of my restless spirit (at the moment!) and my warped sense of humour! I created the background over the previous weekend, whilst home alone (and we all know what can happen, don’t we?!!!) and I carved some “house stamps”, using cheapo erasers that I’d bought on my previous shopping trip (40p for 2 at Morrisons!!)

For this week’s Three Muses – Oriental – challenge: Dragon courtesy of Dover publications. All the rest is me! The text reads:

“And the people fled as the great Dragon, Hun-Gri Mun Chin

descended on the village to do his weekly shop…

just in case “Ribs” were on his list!”

That painted and stamped page is still bare in my art journal, looking a tad “Vincent” with the circles, so I might develop it more later, but it sure made for a fun background here!! What a joy digital/hybrid art is – especially when I have trouble getting up and downstairs for now! Never mind… I’m on the mend and grateful for all the get-well wishes – thank you all! 😀

  1. beautiful card!! love your carved housestamps!!

  2. The carved ‘village’ is fabulous Rosie! Love the background too, makes me wanna go out and wave my sprayed papers in the wind! (or maybe let the rain fall on it.. I might even do that! See what happens…)

  3. I covet your carved village, Rosie. How versatile it will be! I must’ve missed something, since I don’t know from what you’re recovering, but I wish you a speedy one anyway! Thanks for joining in our challenge this week, and for bringing us all a smile!

  4. Your art is always entertaining, Rosie, and I nearly fell out of my chair when I sounded out the name of the dragon! I so much admire your ability to carve your own stamps from erasers. I have tried and generally make a stupendous mess of rubber crumbs. Thanks for the laugh. This is beautiful.

    You have the most wickedly warped sense of humour, and I think that’s why you make me smile with your fantastic art. Mmmmmmm …. 2 for 40p eh?

  8. Wow, love those stamps, Rosie! A wonderful piece.

  9. Rose, I adore your little “about to be pillaged” village AND those house stamps! An afternoon along ((sigh!)) . . . .I can only wish for one!!! Hope that your injury is feeling better. Hugs, Terri xoxxol

  10. Wonderfully original art! The eraser stamps worked fantastically well. Love your humour.

  11. Oh Rosie, what is it that so mysteriously connects our lives? You’ll know what I’m talking about when you get my email!

    LOVE the dragon!! And he’s Chinese, isn’t he? Hun-Gri Mun Chin….makes me want to go out for barbque! LOL! And I love your village, a lot!

    I’m so sorry about your foot, but it certainly hasn’t hurt your artwork, or your sense of humor! XOXO
