Inkspirational #93

What would you do with that word prompt?  I just got a new die from MFT that I thought would work well for the Inkspirational challenge..
This card went though a lot of changes and surgeries and I'm still not happy with it but someone will like it - maybe.  I started with the brick wall made with a stencil from MFT and Distress Inks.  When the rest of the card didn't work, I cut that off and glued it on this one.  I originally masked a circle for the glow but then it looked like a moon so I tried a different approach. I inked the circle and then watercolored the sky.  I didn't mean for it to bleed but I guess that makes it a little more realistic.  I also had a difficult time trying to find a sentiment.  I don't have anything glow-y but when I saw this from Winnie and Walter I thought it was a close second.

I'm glad you dropped by.  I hope your week is going well.

  2. Your spooky sky is perfect for the season, Bobby! I'd say that W&W sentiment deserves a 1st place! Very creative way to use your new MFT street lamp - lovely glow!

  3. Your post made me giggle, it doesn't always work out how we want but this looks just perfect. I like the way the ink of the sky flows and it does look more realistic. Great take on our prompt word at Ink, I found it a toughy!

  4. YOU are being toooo hard on yourself, Bobby! This card is fabulous: the sky is amazing, the brickwork, impressive and your lamp post, all a-glow, is truly the 'shining star' on the stage! *Shine*? Yes! So glad you joined us at Inkspirational (and I agree with Sandie: a challenging challenge!)

  5. Well, that was so worth all the hard work, Bobby ... the glow around that lamp is perfect ... there's a real sense of misty-evening-empty-streets-spookiness about it! Hugs, Anita :)
