Eastern promise


Today's it's my turn again to post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog with artwork featuring the Easter stamps featured on Lesleys recent Hochanda shows.

I have used several stamps including SerenityWisteria LaneArtistic AffirmationsIndian Textiles  and you will find all the details and how I created each piece can be found over at the blog link above. 




I got real grief from eldest daughter about this one, she's a senior ethics tutor and told me in no uncertain terms that I got the colours all wrong, it has to be oranges or nothing, telling her it's artistic licence fell on deaf ears.

As always I appreciate all your visits and kind words and hope that after this weeks hospital procedures I will soon be feeling well enough to start visiting you all again.

Beautiful cards, Brenda. My favourite is the last one - what stunning colours! I agree with you about artistic licence. Wouldn't it be boring if all cards were made in traditional colours. :-) xx
