Picnic In The Clouds


Yay!
 Last night (evening, rather) I got some crafting time and even better still, Mo gave us girls on the DT a new image to play with, and even better still was the fact that I've been waiting for a mixed race friendship image for ages and now I have one and I LOVE IT TO BITS!!
I won't say how loooooong it took me to color and how much grayer my hair is, but lets just say that if people knew what it takes to really COLOR a detailed  image , they wouldn't put these cards on a bookshelf but rather the Museum Of Fine Arts and Lost Eyesight.
OK! Yadda yadda yadda....

So why did I put the picnic blanket in the clouds???
Weeeeeelllll, for one thing, I was having fun with the clouds and didn't want to stop...
and then I thought well it could be a kind of magic carpet ride or something....
and so basically, I just felt like it! :-)
I thought of a caption or two....
"As I was saying, being down to earth is overrated..."
or..
"True Friends are heaven...."
or..
"It's nice to have a friend that takes you back down to earth..."
but!....
as usual, my image takes up so much room there's not room for more than a  "hi!"
so I left it blank.

And a close up of the favoriteist of My Mo images:
Ta da!



Keep in mind that it may be a day or two before this image is in the store .
OK! Off to look for a challenge or two to put this in!
Take Care All!

Tine said...

Hi Dorcas. You are right - it is a fab image, and why not put the blanket in the clouds - that is called artistic licence, and an artistic card it is too.
Tine :)

So lovely!! I would love to ride in the clouds. I really like the 2 ribbon bow. Beautiful job. Thanks for playing with 2 Sisters.

Julie said...

Hi Dorcas,the meessage you left about my crocheted flower sure made me giggle,my flower too had a dodgy petal,I must have done a good job on my camera angle lol! I so love this card,I find it so hard to add a sentiment to Mo's amazing images as I think they completely speak for themselves. I so love how you've coloured the curly haired cutie,is there a tutorial anywhere for this,I did my best but it just wasn't up to your amazing standards! Hope you're having a good week,Julie.x

Howdy stranger! I haven't been in touch with you for a while or heard from you. So I thought I would check to see if you were still in the land of the living. Lol! I see the land of the living really has been lavished with many wonderful creations of little who you, who really is Big Star You. I am amazed at all that you have going on here. Just outstanding to see such beautiful gems in this treasure box blog of yours. I so love your new blog look too bye the way. You have outdone yourself. I remember back when you first started your blog and it was great then, but now it is just a masterpiece. Wow! So love the duck header. That is you all over! Lol. I thought for a minute when I saw your blinkie button that maybe you were making your own digital duck images. You could you know and you would do such a great job designing them. Sorry haven't been around much, stuff going on, doesn't mean I don't think of you or miss you. Off to check out more of your work and maybe learn a thing or two to help little old me be a lot more like you. Big Hugs.

CanadianScraps43 said...

Ooops! Sorry Dorcas but I forgot to add that your card today is a stunner. My mouth just drops to the floor with amazement at your colouring. Hugs.
