I was reading one of my stamped ‘index’ sheets (not filed, not finished and definitely ROUGH) and giggling at some of the sayings when I decided to stamp something ‘just for fun’! So here they are...

I’ve used Lime Green – a colour I’m really NOT a big fan of, though I know it goes so well with other colours – so I’ve decided to enter this for Lots to Do, Theme Thursday and Mixed Media Monday…

any better

For a bit more fun, I added some shading and highlighting cos I wanted to see if there was a lot of difference if I had the images together, to compare… so here they are.

You can't see it in the scan but there's a lot of gold on this ATC - the words are randomly stamped in gold (looks good when turned under the lights) and there's gold around the edges (you can see the haze, vaguely) and elsewhere. It really lifts it.

I really love this image (sent to me years ago by Mel) and am always searching for reasons to use her… isn’t she great?

I am a fan of green so, of course, I love your picture. Having lived through the seventies, I am not a fan of the blinding lime greens and oranges but your green is softer and tempered by the gold glow in the centre. I love your piece. It is beautiful.

I can see why you love this image. She's wonderful. I love the "once a goddess" line as well. It fits her perfectly...perhaps better than the first moniker! Anyway, you've left me smiling, and that's a good thing.

She is great, and so is your piece! Green is my favorite color, and lime works especially well in my collages.It's such a great foil for reds, pinks, and,as you've already discovered: gold. You may indeed get used to this shade!

Fab art I love green any shade. The image looks like how I felt after cooking Christmas Lunch !

Cath, the lime green is not one of my favorites, but it's also not the least favorite. I love the stamp you used and have never seen anyone else use it. No wonder you like it so much. Your second use of her I really like. The background is gorgeous.

Now you've got me thinking about chocolate limes (the sweeties)... Lovely pic - in all its forms!
