I've stuck with neutral colours plus green and am entering these into the Colour challenge over at Gingersnaps creations as well as the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge where the theme is ' distressing'
My next project was also inspired by The Stamp Man but this time the 'Autumn' theme challenge. These are colours which I don't normally use so it was a good project to get me thinking - I used a skeleton leaf stamp from The Stamp Man and distress inks to create two different BPs and then delved into my new TH stamps for the umbrella man image, corners and sentiment. I distressed and inked the edges of the papers before layering them up keeping it fairly simple to let the backgrounds stand out. I have to admit this man was one of the images I couldn't see myself using, but actually he seemed to fit this card, which for me evokes thoughts of the Autumn arriving and the approaching end of another year - I think he is staring out from his umbrella contemplating. Blimey I seem to have returned from my hols all reflective and thoughtful - that won't last !!
