I am so glad that the current LESS IS MORE challenge is running for two weeks - I've had a head full of ideas since I saw the theme of Just One Word but Christmas sort of got in the way of playing and today has been my first chance to get inky.
Me and the Toad were discussing ideas this morning (he does come up with some elaborate and impossible plans, bless) when I had an idea involving Magnolia Chess Pieces. So off I dutifully went to hunt them down. I did find them, but I also found a stamp that I liked better and had an instant idea for.
I think I still had in my head Great Expectations from the telly last night, at the point when Herbert is urging Pip and Magwitch to get in the rowing boat quickly before they missed the tide and there was a fog over the river. This was the inspiration for the clock and the colours.
Ingredients for this card:
Stamped Image: Magnolia Clock (stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento)
Sentiment: Papermania Alphabet Letters (in London Fog Distress Inks)
Inks: Background inking with Distress Inks - Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Iced Spruce, Forest Moss
And that's it. I think the mojo is fired up again now so I'm off to have a go at some DT work while the muse is upon me!
