Me and my shadow

Hi you all! Hope you are managing to keep warm if it's still winter where you are. We have had sunshine for 2 days, but it is still extremely cold and windy. It was wonderful to see the sun, though! And this evening, as I write, the sky is cloudless and a large, full moon with an ice-halo is sailing over the sky.

My card today is for the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the DT wants to see something using a quote, or saying or something similar. I chose a line from a song which has been going round in my head for the past few days - me and my shadow. I have printed the song-text onto the card, and then added an umbrella man, cut from an old book cover, and his shadow, made using the waste as a template. I matted it onto some printed brown card that was part of some packaging, and tied it all together with some string. I added a TH token as embellishment.  I used vintage photo DI for the shading.


The light was on when I took the second pic, and it looks all washed out - sorry!


And I forgot to post my Tag Tuesday tag again, so here it is. We have arrived at 'L' in our ABC, and I chose ladders, so made my tag with a snakes and ladders game.


That's all for today! Take care, have a good day, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  19. Val I love how you made the shadow on your card and the song lyrics are so beautiful. When you know a song so well you forget to concentrate on what they're actually saying. The snakes and ladders is so inspired too. Brilliant job. xx

  23. I keep expecting the umberella guy to kick his heels to the side. There's also a look of Charlie Chaplin about him.
    The snakes and ladders look like you really had fun.
    You've been really busy. ;D
