Stick to tradition, folks !

Having a LOVELY relaxing day crafting !

I saw a sketch at Karen Giron’s Sweetest Thing blog and jiggled it over to suit my image better. I also missed the tabby bit off my card because it didn’t work ( is all this ok??!)

I am REALLY pleased with how nicely coloured this My Tower image from A Day For Daisies has come up. It’s an alcohol ink coloured digi image – all very out of my comfort zone ! – and I ESPECIALLY love her hair ( I ALWAYS wanted Rapunzel hair – my niece is well on her way to achieving it !) The text background paper is actually the story of Rapunzel – another great digi overlay from Mel Stampz !

This card matches the criteria for the new challenge over at A Day For Daisies – script/text – so I am entering it for that !

You may notice I have not used the name “Tangled” anywhere in this post. We recently saw the DVD and I was ‘meh’ about it. I am not a big animated fairy-tale person as the stories seem to becoming more and more corrupted from the originals, and I don’t see how the plot of Tangled is an improvement on Rapunzel. It all feels a little plagiaristic – which, to a teacher, is an anathema !! I am, however, rather looking forward to Brave which seems finally to have the kind of heroine I want my nearly-6 to look up to !! Hoots, mon, we breed wur lassies t’be fearless an’ bold in this soggy wee land !!!

    Fabulous!!! Glad you found a sketch to use the image! I know how hard it is to use larger images on cards and this one worked out beautifully! Thanks for playing along with the SSSC!
