Hello. Welcome. Have you checked out the Crafty Individuals Challenge this month? The theme is Scenic Stamping and the entries are amazing. I must admit when I saw the theme my heart dropped because this is something I don't do!! Then I saw the first entry which Rosie posted and I knew I was lost. But you have to try don't you?? I mean, if we only do what we are good at then how will we improve and grow? So I tried. Then I tried again. And again. And, I'm not joking, I have a pile of papers covered in really bad scenes that don't work. I was thinking of giving up. I made scenes with flowers. I have sea scenes. Scenes with turtles. Lots of turtles. Too many turtles. So many turtles there is no room for the scene. I was frustrated. Covered in ink. Running out of ideas and patience. Arrrrrgggggggg.
I was in two minds whether to share this but, since I am amongst friends, I feel you will be polite enough not to laugh. At least you have the option to not leave a comment. Don't feel you have to, just to be polite. I must admit, scene is maybe a stretch of the descriptive but I like the final result. I am trying to decide whether to share the before version.......
OK, OK, you can stop laughing now. A penguin standing on a rock watching a butterfly. A scene? Maybe it is. Not a grand scene. But a scene. All the stamps are Crafty Individuals. I used 2 Penguin, just the one here, the turtle from A Bright Future is pretending to be a rock, the butterfly and sentiment are from Butterfly Mornings and Wildflower Afternoons and the flower is from Build a Meadow ( it was on my desk cos I had tried to build a meadow ROFL). I coloured with distress stains, Mustard Seed, Milled Lavender and the other one. I mounted in a trifold aperture card and fussy cut the butterfly. Then I thought it looked a bit bare so I did some lines around and around and around. I think it's an improvement LOL.
