Yes, tis I, the equivalent in connotation to the caption as stated up above, and the ever so absent author of
T.C.E.S.H. (short for my incredibly long blog name).
I am here with what now seems
to be my monthly post, LOL!
I must say, I am feeling much
better of late, and I have come to realize that this rest is exactly what I needed. Hence, I will most likely continue to post in this manner from hereon in. Honestly, I don’t
know how some of you post two and three times per week. Heck, it’s even hard to
keep up with commenting on your blogs as well; so if I have missed any, please
except my humble apologies :)
I made today's card for my friend Ignacio
over at Nicecrane Designs. He recently promoted a collection of digital images
by the well-known English artist, Louis Wain.
Wain was best known for his
drawings, which consistently featured anthropomorphized large-eyed cats and
kittens. Funny enough, or perhaps sadly, in Wain's later years he may have suffered from schizophrenia. Please know though, I don't mean any disrespect by pairing this caption together with his images on the card. This was purely coincidental, I only found out after I made the card, oops :o (Good ole Wikipedia)
Now, getting back to the subject ... I
like to use Nicecrane Designs images from time to time because they provide the opportunity to practice
my colouring texture skills. Take a peek at the before photohere to see what I mean…
I tackled something new for a change, in
that I merged three digital images together using Microsoft Word to make one card. The two Nicecrane Designs jpeg images,
and one png word art image; courtesy of Ginger’s House.
There was a "how to merge digital images" tutorial in the
recent Sizzling Summer Edition of TTCRD Magazine and I thought it high time to try it out. I thought the two images and the word art work off each other purrrrrfectly, aha, my proof it wasn't intentionally disrespectful!
I printed everything out on Neenah card stock and then used my Copic markers; quite a collection of colours I must say...
It is basically a CAS design
given that I wanted the focus to be entirely on the images. I went with a black and orange "calico cat" theme and simply embossed
black/orange "core’dinations" card stock to form the actual card first, added a few brads and a touch of Stardust stickles on their whiskers...Walla!
Here is a closer look at my
attempt at texture, and the more I look at this I realize Calico cats have a lot more white, oh well…
**Please forgive any out of the lines colouring, thanks**
Ok, that's about all I have
to say with the exception of...
I will be entering my card in the following challenge(s) –
