Was, Wasn't, Isn't

Evening all, just a quick flyby post from me tonight while I am patiently waiting for a pan full of onions to caramelise to go with the leftover roast beef for dinner.

I noticed that Tiddly Inks have another DT Call open.  I tried for it last time and missed out so I thought I would try again.  Then the old wobbly confidence kicked in and I talked myself out of it after I had made my card.  Then I read the requirements more carefully and as I don't use digi images (I'm a pure rubber girl me) it rather sealed the issue.  

So here is the card that was, wasn't, isn't.

I used the Bloom Beautifully clear set of stamps for the image
and a clear sentiment from one of my many (now unlabelled) sets
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and a touch of pencil to define her hair
Papers are white card coloured with Mustard ProMarker and the chevron paper is Basic Grey

I'm not sure what road signs are like outside of the UK, but this turned out rather
like an AA information sign!

That's me done for tonight - better go and give the onions a prod.

Hope to see you in the morning for the new Without Words challenge.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

oh squirrel, I wish you could appreciate the beautiful art that you create more yourself (OK, that sentence does sound weird. what I meant was: don't put yourself down all the time and just accept the fact you're doing brilliant stuff!!!) I absolutely love this card. And honestly, OK, sometimes you don't get chosen, you try and nothing comes out of it. But that doesn't mean you're doing a bad job! Try again! And again! Because personally I think people out there should see your crafts because they are brilliant! I believe in you...
P.S. enjoy your dinner :)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Do you agree with me that "digital stamps" are not stamps? Who are these people trying to kid? Love that ziggy zaggy paper in the background of your bright and lovely card.
