LIM 58 - Script


This week's LIM challenge is to use some script on a one layer card in addition to any sentiment text. I love script as a background and use it often but it struck me that script didn't only have to mean roman script so I dug out my All Night Media chinese calligraphy stamp and stamped it in Memento london fog. I'm developing a real fondness for greys - my last 2 ink pad purchases have been london fog & Stazon stone grey. The bird is a Simple Expressions stamp and the text is by Stampsmith. I know Chrissie & Mandi are not keen on floating branches but the brush style of the image didn't seem to need grounding and didn't look right anywhere but in the middle of the page. Hope you like it and I hope to be able to see everyone else's creations this week.

  1. You are absolutely right about this branch not needing to be anchored anywhere, it almost looks as though the bird is carrying it in flight!
    It's a fabulous card!
    Thanks so much
