Here For You

Hello there!

I've been playing around with inks... practicing sponging - what I was aiming for was a stormy sky... It's a scene that's been in my head but trying to translate it onto a card is another matter ... I am by no means a trained artist, I just try to learn as I go.

 This card isn't meant to actually cheer someone... It's more to say "hey, I know how you feel - and I'm here for you" 

I used a torn piece of paper as a mask to blend my inks and as AAA Cards has a Masking challenge 


I'm hoping that this will qualify



There are many times in life we just feel alone...tossed by the storm and that's what I was trying to capture... Maybe practice will make perfect one day


Still I'm pleased with this effort and you know, if you squint and tilt your head ... It would make a good cover for a book Lol!


Kind of funny the things that go around in one's mind  but at least I got this one out

Have a beautiful day/evening - We've had lovely sunshine here in the UK
I'll be back tomorrow for the new challenge at City Crafter, till then be safe

This caught my eye when I was surfing the net. I love the gray skies and bits of rain at a slant. You did a very nice job, and I really got the emotions from the card. Well done!!!!

I am impressed that you are able to create a scene that you had in your head. Perfect details and the font of the sentiment is gorgeous. And a perfect match.

You had sun? It's been raining here since yesterday evening; yikes! And more to come...

Take care sweetie,,,
XXXXX

Well, you are an artist, Ros, & here's another wonderful example! You captured the stormy sky beautifully & I love the silhouette image! Glad you had some sun--wishing we'd have less--LOL!

Actually I love your card, Ros and it would make a good book cover, a wonderful piece of art! Happy Tuesday!

Love your masked background colours and the tree looks so striking set against it. Great sentiment too. Thanks for sharing with AAA Cards.

Your cards always inspire me. Love how you like to pop unusual things on and come up with new and clever ideas. Love the colours and the atmosphere on this card, you nailed it!

Stunning!! I love the rain drops, they look so real!

Tracy said...

LOL I think you're right about the book cover. A who dunit I would think. :-) I really like how the inking turned out. The all black stamping and bird really stand out and the Glossy Accents rain captures the feel of the stormy weather just right. Great job Ros!

Diane said...

Wow...amazing card...should be framed...beautifully done!!

Sue Lelli said...

Oh WOW! I just LOVE this and the rain is like icing on the cake!

Robyn Oliver said...

Magnificent stormy sky, wow Ros such a clever and eye catching card

Lorraine said...

Despite the stormy weather there is a glimmer of light on the bird giving hope. So beautiful.
