having a change

I find 'man' cards quite difficult , so decided to have a go when I found this challenge site - movingalongwiththetimes (which used to be Daisy and Dandelion apparently, and has now spread its wings a bit) which had a sketch for inspiration. I started to tidy up the craft space so that my daughter will be able to reach the bed to sleep at the weekend, and found some Elusive Images stamps that I had forgotten I had, and somehow this card resulted - and no, the tidying hasn't got any further!

The background was a Tim Holtz stamp from the urban tapestry set stamped in DI old paper and then over stamped in weathered wood, but a bit off. The fish was stamped in blue jeans, and gone over slightly with a waterbrush - the circle is cut from paper printed from an Artylicious cd - I think it was the seasons' greetings one, but not sure now, as it was also something I found.

These two cards use digital images from Mo's digital pencil,
with illustrations by Mo Manning , a site I found when bloghopping - I couldn't resist this gorgeous kitten Sinatra, the more so as he was a freebie! Looking through the site I also found this cheeky monkey, which was also a freebie - I had great fun colouring them both in with watercolour pencils while waiting for cakes to finish baking. Many thanks to Judith for providing the link to this lovely blog - it is the first time I have tried digital images, and somehow I don't think it will be the last.


  1. I really like the man's card Veronica. The way you've used the Tim Holtz stamp on the background is brilliant.

    I also love that EI Koi stamp. I think that came out just before I discovered Glenda & Co and I've never got round to getting it but I think I need to.

    Those digi images are cute, especially the kitten.
