The future comes one day at a time

I made this card for the Doors, windows and architecture challenge on the Paperartsy blog.

I was impressed and inspired by Lin Brown's post on the PA blog. I did not create a whole book, but just stamped one image and coloured that with Derwent pencils.

It took some effort to create the background. I tried a lot of things. They all ended up in the garbage bin. In the end, I took a card, coloured it with white gesso and Haystack Fresco paint. The sentiment is stamped on paper coloured with Distress Ink.


Stamps used:
building: US-Arched Apertures Plate 1.
script: Travel Plate 2.
image, sentiment: Hot Pick 1007.

Your background came out really well, a great back drop to your focal point.

Your colour scheme is refreshingly different Mark. I like what you have done. Background turned out well, love the stamp.

Love the Lost and Found effect on the building in the background and the arch like window. Great page!

I really love that arched window, Mark. This turned out to be so effective in the end. xx
