I adore the sun, but this sticky humidity is not for me. What I could really do with is to be chilling out somewhere by a lovely pool with a mojito in my hand. But I guess my craft room will have to do for the moment.
Sadly it is my last day as GDT for Anything Goes. The challenge this week is the letter D. This was right up my street as I have some lovely new stamps from Art Journey, and I have chosen Dancers. The stance of these dancers reminds me of watching somebody on Strictly Come Dancing (probably Vincent and Flavia) dancing the Argentine Tango in a steamy underground nightclub or bar.
The background is coloured with Distress Inks. I have chosen fairly hot colours, tempered with some cool blue. I coloured two pieces of card, and on the larger piece I stamped a small swirl around the edge. The black and orange card are from stash, as are the pearls. The flower is Prima, and what luck that it toned in so well.
People often ask - what is your style - well - it really depends on what stamps, box, mirror or whatever, I am using, and how I think it can best be represented, and this is one look I am loving at the moment. But, expect to see more Art Journey soon!
