From the Garden -- Penciled Twinks...

Didya' ever create a piece and think "NOW WHAT?" Three or four weeks ago, I created the flower with the masked crackle on the piece above using the Penciled Twinks technique from the February 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. It sat there, hovering near - but not quite on - my work area. Kind of in my periphrial vision. The piece was much larger than it is now and I just didn't like all the Ivory crackling.
Today while I was task avoiding another project, I picked this up and started to cut. I decided to trim off the excess ivory using the Out of the Box Technique from the October 2004 issue of the Newsletter. I just paired it with some layers and some Designer paper, and viola! I think it just POPS! And it is even MORE shimmery in person.
Now, to get back to the project I was SUPPOSED to be doing!

Beautiful. I had to have that stamp and yes, it is so big I think I'm intimidated by it. It needs to get inky.

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous, thank goodness you finished it. Sometimes you have to step away from an image and then that little light bulb goes off and voila! A masterpiece.
