My camera died today.
"The horror! The horror!"
Name that quote. Don't google.
When I try to use my light tent with my phone, the lines from the bulbs in my Ott lights show on the photo. My husband told me to use his Nikon D-50, but it intimidates me. I'm going to have to learn to do something new.
Some days, that's too much.
Can you relate?
Anyway, I have a few photos of cards that haven't been shared yet, so we're good for a few days. Technically, today's post could be two posts but that would be a waste of everyone's time because the cards are much the same, although one of them does use a rarely-seen-on-this-blog colored base.
Here you go.
Isn't that sentiment fabulous!!! You certainly won't find it in today's literary source, which is depressing beyond words.
My first coloring attempt with this stamp took the shading in the opposite direction, but it looked strange to me...perhaps simply because Copic coloring is so challenging for me. Whatever. So I googled actual pictures of roses and noted that many of them have lighter shades of color on the inside of petals and darker shades toward the edges. This seems counterintuitive to me, too, but I mentioned recently how horticulturally challenged I am, being more a plant hospice worker than green thumb.
I like the odd results.
Both cards use Memento black ink, which stays put no matter how much Copic layering you do, on Gina K heavy white cardstock, which is coated to make blending Copic and other alcohol inks easier. Thank you, Memento and Gina.
The orange rose has bits hanging over the edge of the popped panel...which adds a bit of interest to the card, I think.
Here's another line from our literary source for this post, one of my favorite lines in all literature for its sound (but certainly not for its meaning).
"A taint of imbecile rapacity blew through it all, like a whiff from some corpse."
Say it out loud. It's brilliant, even faintly onomatopoeic in a rather gross way.
Now, without googling, who can tell me who penned these lines and in what work they may be found?
Mercy, grace, peace, and love to fight the darkness,
