When is a cyclamen Elusive? When they always turn up their toes and die the minute I get them through the door and when I've used an Elusive Images stamp to produce a more durable plant, that's when :).
I've been trying to blend with my Copics and I'm quite pleased with the leaves, though the flowers are best viewed from a distance. Image was stamped twice in Memento London Fog and the flowers and leaves decoupaged with the dreaded silicon glue. I've used the sketch from Sketch & Stash as the basis for this card, though I've missed off the two flowers. I punched a couple out of paper and they looked really clumsy beside the delicate stamped images, so I took them off and put them into the scrap box. I've also entered this for the Graphicus Challenge to use complimentary colours.
I used new and negelcted stash for my card: the new stash is the Nestie label die that came from my being lucky enough to win a Simon Says challenge and the cyclamen stamp from Elusive Images is the neglected stash. It's from an unmounted rubber stamp set with the most beautiful set of greetings. They are standard words such as Best Wishes but in the most wonderful, flowing script. So... when it arrived I didn't have much EZMount and I left the flowers unmounted. I've been trying to sort all my stamps out so they are mounted with laminated sheets for storage and finally the cyclamen and the daffodil will be inked up!
