Internet problems and creative challenges

For several weeks now I have been having real issues with my broadband supposedly fixed but heavy weather proved that to be wishful thinking.   Now an engineering is coming on Monday afternoon, hopefully it will be fully fixed after that.

Mind you poor connection stops me spending too much time playing silly FB games and instead get a little inky.


Above is a simple stamp and colour using a Pennyblack stamp felt pens and a little watercoloring.   The image is stamped in Sepia.   I'm sharing this card with CASology whose theme is Simple, and Cards and more who are looking for one layer cards.



The sorting through my stamps I came across one that has never before been inked, this pair of sneakers from Woodward.    Coloured this one with Promarkers, with all the playing cards I've been making my Alcohol ink pens have been a bit neglected and it was good to use them here.   Blue suede shoes was running through my head during the making of this card.  What you cannot easily see here is that the right shoe has been stamped twice and layered up on the card.   Sharing this with Your Next Stamp and their colour theme, I've used 4 of the colours here, two blue shades, grey and white.   Winter Blues is the theme at Graphit colour markers.

Still connected, will it last long enough to link up?

  1. Pleased you managed to get this posted Zoe. I have managed to get you back on my blogroll so hope to see more of your creations. The cards are terrific and clever idea to stamp twice and use one shoe in a different way

    Love Chrissie xx
