At FSC the challenge this fortnight is to use stencils or masks. I used a TH spider-web stencil to make the background for my card. It has been distressed with DI in tumbled glass, faded jeans and chipped saphire.
I stamped the background here and there with a crackle stamp before adding the top layer of stamps - the witch, cat, hat and sentiment are from a Halloween set by close to my heart, that I won in a challenge last year. I stamped the images with archival black and embossed them with EP extra fine in black. The owl corners have been punched, and the bow made from some distressed gauze. I mounted the card onto a black mat and used a 6x6 card in dark blue.
I had a long walk today, through the fields, past the lakes and stables, and then into 'town' and along the Rhine. I was really tired, so I went into the bakery and treated myself to a large cappuccino - naughty but yummy!
There are several of these tunnels along the path through the fields. They lead under the motorway to the fields on the other side, so that wild animals can get from one side to the other in safety. In winter I met a fox that had just crossed through, but he was not pleased to see me!
When I stopped to take a photo of these ladies, they all looked at me as if they were wondering what I was up to...
The horses all turned their backs on me and got on with their grazing....
Tomorrow the weather should be better, so I hope to have another nice walk, perhaps in a different direction this time.
Have a good day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
