Wow...week #32 in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge with Linda @ StudioL3! Winding down, but I think the best have been saved for last. I admit, I love using masks, I just never remember to do it...unless my back is against the wall, and I have tried all other ridiculous solutions,which never work, and then, Duh! try a mask! LOL!
In case you haven't noticed, and I have only done 3 items with them, but I have a thing for pears...maybe I see myself in them, I don't know. I don't eat them raw, generally, but do make a mean pear crisp! And I have almost every pear stamp there is! So, it was the first stamp I thought of to give this a go (oh, and the fact that it would be easy to cut out the mask..that was in the brain as well!)
Now, (and I actually have to be quick..posting at work..shh) I probably could have made the background darker so the pear would have stood out more, but I really liked it at this level, and I actually remember all the previous challenges where I mentioned I should have stopped 2 steps earlier! I will, though, at least I think I will...go back and put some rock candy stickles inside the pear...today it seems to need it! The Pear came from Art Impressions (I so love this line; I really need to use them more often; they can be very grungy too!), the Pear Text came from A Stamp in the Hand, the Pear Kanji came from Onyxpressions (spelling?) and the Latin Text came from Anna Griffin. Yeah, that was done with Tea Dye DI...was a bit too red, maybe Pumice would have been better...but it does sorta go with the Aged Mahogany that was rubbed on the edges.
Well, better get going; need to keep the job to keep buying stuff! Have a great weekend (Holiday to you US-er's). Happy Crafting!
