The challenge #67 this fortnight at DS4J is Spring has Sprung. Here is the theme (in quotes)
THEME : 'Spring has sprung'. The Northern hemisphere will be
celebrating spring! Make a creation/card showing how you enjoy this season,
whether it is chasing the lambs in the field, oohing and aahing the new
blossoms on the fruit trees, or the fact that you will be seeing more sun! Go
for it! The word SPRING should appear somewhere on your card.
Isn't it fun?
Weather this year is so finicky. Feels like winter some days and summer on others.
But it is flowering. Smell of jasmine and roses - Hmmm - Divine!
I have used a pretty image this week called Berry Pixie
Sure was a bit hard to do as I used a thick K&company paper to make the ruffles instead of a thinner pattern paper .Lots of learning curve. Because of all thickness unless you make the card top edges as box like to cover the sides it shows too much. Inspired by Anna Griffin and Christina from Card making magic. Only one change I wish I had made, I wish I had colored the pixies top hat more flower like color instead of leaf like. Guess I thought green would pop up more than the orange when I was doing it.Added lots of stickles for sparkle
P.B. Shelley is one of my favorite poets along with Frost , Wordsworth and Tagore.
Anyone remember Ozymandias? inspired by Ramses statue? One of my earliest reads was seeing it in Times library books - Ancient Egypt.
I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed. And on the pedestal these words appear: `My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings: Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!’ Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, The lone and level sands stretch far away”.
-Percy Blythe Shelly
Oh I so digress from the card.
But this poem always gets me - so humbling isn't it? The Hand of Time.
We have some lovely images released at DS4J shop this week.
One of the image is flower power
The 60's. Well since I was born in late 60's my knowledge from this period is of course second hand ;)
But this image is so so cute and versatile
Not much to say about the card except see that sort of flower burst on the right - that is from a new memory box die I got. I cut the strip of paper in the center point half way line ( the die is sort of negative cuts - I have layered the orange paper over the blue paper so the blue you see is beneath where the die has cut out the orange) and punched a smaller circle to layer. The flower and swirls are from my stash - (wow I have had it for more than a year and not used it). Image colored with copics and edged with memento chalk ink
