Follow the Yellow Brick Road




In an effort to find my Muse that I think must be lost somewhere in Daylight Savings Time, I turned to this weeks Card Pattern Sketch.  I took some creative liberties with the sketch, but using different shapes, and overlapping the center image.  While I was creating today's card, Miranda Lambert's song The House That Built Me popped into my head...

I know they say you can’t go home again
I just had to come back one last time
Ma’am I know you don’t know me from Adam
But these handprints on the front steps are mine

Weird, huh?  The wonderful images are from the Artistic Outpost Oz Collage plate, stamped in Black and colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  I embossed the Bricks using the Texture Fades Brick Folder, elongating it to fit my design.   The papers are from Memory Box that my friend Sue had given to me - even though they are more for Halloween, I thought they'd work well with these images.

Those papers most definitely work wonderfully with these images. Love the overlapping in the middle instead of the circle.
