This week at Corrosive Challenges we are following Janet's sketch and I've used it to make a card that's been on my mind for a few days, while I'm trying to increase the number of cards suitable for men in my stash. This week's Simon Says Challenge is Sing It Baby. After watching Oil City Confidential about Dr Feelgood and their Canvey Island beginnings I have had All Through the City on the brain:"I've been searching all through the city
See you in the morning down by the jetty"
Now admittedly the jetties there are no doubt for huge oil tankers and my jetty is rather a romanticised version but it is a jetty:).
My card is heavily inspired by an article by Karen Kerr in Cardmaking & Papercraft, who demonstrates using the Hobby Art stamps to build a scene. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the watery DP came from Stamp Attic.
My card also fits Totally Papercraft's By the Sea Challenge and Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge of It's a Man's World
Brilliant card Anne - love the image and how you have made it fit the sketch. Your DP is a brilliant choice... really makes me think of the sea swirling about that jetty.ReplyDelete
