I recently needed to search for a stamp, which meant I came across stamps I haven’t used for a while and this was one of them…I was so touched by this quote (again – that’s obviously why I bought it!) that I just needed to use it and so I made these cards, all in an attempt to get a design I was happy with…

It was late afternoon, so I wasn’t able to get a good phot (note the shadows) and of course I gave them all to friends that evening and can’t take more pics, but I hope you’ll get the idea Smile

  HUMAN SUBTLETY

The quote from daVinci reads:-

‘Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature, because in her inventions nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous.’

I don’t think any of us could disagree with that!

Thanks for looking.

Back again to share some more of my playtimes.

Nothing very different – still playing with colour, stamps and stencils, but this time more focus on stencils and a little bit of Bible Journalling. Is it journalling or journaling?  My ‘English’ head says it’s double ‘l’ but I know the Americans use one…this globalisation thing has really confused our languages…Winking smile

So, a little bit of stencilling…with Oxides.

TRELLIS Ba

This time I removed some colour by spraying with water through a stencil  after stamping.

BELIEVE AND SHINE

and this one is simply sponged through a stencil.

A little more Bible Journalling/Journaling… rough though it may be…

BELIEVE

Just did a quick challenge check and there are not one but two Stencil challenges so I can enter one of the above into…

That’s Crafty Stencil it Challenge

and

Country View Challenges – Stencils.

The current challenge at

Addicted to Stamps is to use more than one stamp.

Lots more to share when I get around to it and have no more techy problems!

Thanks for looking and have a great week!

I love, love, LOVE trees!

So I had a couple of days of playing with a Crafty Individuals image I had forgotten I had (sound familiar???) and had great fun.

The first one uses one of my favourite colour combos – turquoise and lime… though the Citrus Oxide all but disappears when used with water…I may have added a touch of blue to this one, too.

AUTUMN BLESSINGS

The next two are more autumnal colours…

EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL TREE

EBEAUTIFUL 2

…and this one is more sunsetty… a new word? I seem to be using a lot of red lately, which is unusual for me.

AUTUMN TREES

This one was inspired by Anke’s gorgeous card here – though I didn’t use her design (which I LOVE) I did use the same stamps, which she reminded me I have!

OOps! The ‘Thankful’ stamp doesn’t look this crooked in real life…wonder how that happened?  Will have to check it more carefully!

It’s been a week of parties, gigs and Granddaughter’s birthday, PLUS having to reset my laptop AGAIN Sad smile  AND staying up WAY too late (4.30am) chatting to my son… so I’ve had lots of catching up and other stuff to keep me occupied and very little time for crafting…I plan to put that right very soon Winking smile

I’d like to enter the red trees card into the Sparkles Monthly Autumn Colours challenge and the

Addicted to Stamps Autumn Challenge.

Thanks for looking.

See you soon.
