Feeling a Bit Rusty

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)...

Love those flutterbies, Paul and the subtle bringing together of colour - that dusky rose colour is so pretty. I'm feeling very rusty, too and I've been trying to make sure I at least stamp a little. Sometimes life has other plans for a little while x

Lovely to see you do a card again. Maybe going to the crop has inspired your mojo again.
