Warm Sky Thankyou

I don’t know that I have ever seen a sky quite this colour but I am sure it is possible.   This was somewhat experimental but I am very happy with the way it turned out.  I stamped the flower from Of the Earth and the grass from Pocket Silhouettes in versamark to create my field of flowers then embossed in clear.   I used a brayer and Apricot Appeal for the sky, Certainly Celery for a little ground and then Pumpkin Pie around the edges.

I was inspired by this pretty  card created by Jennifer McGuire.


Stamps: Of the Earth. Pocket Silhouettes, Thank You Kindly
Inks: Versamark, Chocolate Chip. Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal

    Another great card, thank you.

    Skies of that colour are known here. Last year, whilst we were with you, skies like that were seen in Sydney and along the east coast of Australia. Dust storms in Central Australia and prevailing westerly winds brought thousands of tonnes of red soil from inland,depositing it upon houses, cars, everything in the path of the winds. There were reports of dust deposits across the Tasman Sea in New Zealand.

    Familiar landmarks like the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge were covered with a film of dust. In fact, at the height of the storm, they were almost obliterated from sight. Subsequent rain did not totally remove the dust, but created new patterns as water streamed or trickled across dust covered surfaces.

    When we arrived home many weeks later, there still much evidence of the great dust storm of 2009 around our house and garden.

    Perhaps, with water washes and your Australian stamps, there are new possibilities for creative card making. A new challenge for you.
