Making a card for a funky, bee keeping, alternative guy on his 70th Birthday, and participating in the Stampotique Designers Challenge :) Who says I cant multi task ... lol
I made the textured background flowers from tissue paper. They resemble carnations, but I am thinking lotos fruit, and my favourite lines of poetry sprung to mind .... "And, like a downward smoke, the slender stream. Along the cliff to fall and pause and fall did seem .... (Tennyson, The Lotos-Eaters). Lots of paint, stencilling (notice the honey comb), fussy cutting etc etc. This is the Birthday boy, all relaxed, dreaming in his Lotos-Eaters world .....
I wanted Baby Cthulhu to feature, so stamped him onto shrink plastic and colored with copics. He is simulating a bee ... because after all, this is an imaginary, dreamy kinda world :)
I'd quite like to visit there myself, wanna come ?
