'And the Weather is...Perfect!'

'Weather Forecast'
Is the new challenge, this fortnight, at FSC.

And the weather is perfect!
A balmy Summer's day at dusk, with the sun going down, 
the night clouds gently rolling in,
no wind...no rain...
Peaceful...
Perfect!


We have a small, seaside town just 10 mins down the road which we
affectionately call 'The Wong' and each time I look at this card
it reminds me of it.

I have kept this card pretty simple using different stamps from all over the place.
Not even any masking...just 'pot luck' with random stamping.
Also it is one-layer.

And another card for my 'male card' collection - and that's a bonus!

For the background I have again used Bister 
as I am still enjoying these paints and what you can do with them.
I did experiment with some other backgrounds, but I liked this one the best.
And for those of you who might be wondering,
I have coloured the border using Bister and water mixed together on my craft sheet.

Our challenge this fortnight is to depict the weather somehow...
From rain or snow, to soaring heat...and anything in between.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your creation...and then just follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!


Enjoy!
