Upon Reflection

Good afternoon.

It's not often the I put up a challenge card in the middle of the week but I have the rest of the week off work. Hurray!

So here is a card for 2 challenges:

Sketch and Stash challenge #100 - Use any sketch from the last 99
Crafty Creations Challenges #105- No Flowers

I used the Sketch and Stash sketch no. 82 and the stash was the sari ribbon on the backing panel.

The main image is a stamp from a Barbara Gray Clarity stamp which has been given a simple reflection a moon and some bulrushes in the foreground. A brayer was used to colour the sky and water with Adirondack ink

To continue the watery theme, the backing panel has been made from beautiful strips of recycled saris which have been felted onto a cotton backing. The panel was then trimmed to size and mounted on card to give it some stability. A ribbon was wrapped round before the panel was bonded to the A5 white base card. The bow was made separately and bonded on once the card had been assembled.

The bottom lacy edge was cut from navy blue pearlescent card using a Spellbinders boarder.
