Yes, I know it feels a strange conclusion to come to but I honestly felt a bit out of practice whilst wiling away the time constructing a card. Especially as I was following a sketch. All I needed to do was fill in the blanks. It's rather like admitting to being stumped with adding colour to a paint-by-numbers.
Anyway, I shall hope to rectify this temporary rustiness by continuing to make a few more cards in the coming days and weeks, just to keep my hand in. As much as I enjoy art and drawing the crafting bug soon hits when I fail to indulge.
The catalyst, for this creation was the reliably trusty challenge site, Mojo Monday. Always nice to have a slight nudging of inspiration. I find sketches do just about enough work already for you, leaving plenty of room to play around and add your own spin on it.
I shall be short and sweet tonight. And in the spirit of E.F. Bensons Mapp & Lucia (which I'm currently watching on DVD with the excellent casting trio of Nigel Hawthorne, Prunella Scales & Geraldine McEwan)...
