Less is More - Seeing double

The last few days have been very un-creative in fact my Mojo went on holiday.   The move is going to be a little later than anticipated hopefully will get a date nailed down next week but will have to wait and see.   The IMPs had a half hour drive in the car the next test for them is an hour drive and a few miles on the motorway.    Hopefully they will go to sleep.

Did get stamps out today and had a little play.   The L.I.M. challenge is 'Seeing Double' something stamped twice.    Using Clarity stamps First the Masai in outline using black memento, masked and behind him stamped the image in block form, using DI Aged Mahogany.   Coloured the first impression's robe with Promarker, cut a mask so that the image was covered but the robe could be stamped.   Over stamped the robe with a Fiskers boarder stamp in gold.    Grounded the images which then needed something in the distance to be looking at.    Clarity mini Giraffe stamp in Versafine Gray just slightly off the edge sorted that. 

Right back to trying to get on top of everything, Shaw trust are coming in the morning to collect some of the clutter.   Just the garage to sort now.

  12. Wow, Zoe! This is brilliant! I love it. Your Mojo appears to be back! I am thinking of you, even if I don't get to visit as often as I would like. I hope you are as lucky as we were transporting the cats. Tigger sat on the parcel shelf the whole way from Nottingham to reading trying to catch the bridges over the motorway!
