Two for the price of one…..DCM Cards
Posted by manicstamper on April 6, 2007
Today’s dare is Art and although I am not a great lover of modern art I wanted to do something that was bright and very simple but also to have a meaning. I have called this piece ‘Pushing the Button’……..having been thinking about how many times in a day we push buttons whether at work in an office, a factory or the home or during leisure time watching TV, listening to music, using the computer. Most things we do involve pushing a button of some kind.
So this is just a white square card blank and each area has been masked before colouring using cotton wool and ink from a Palette Hybrid Inkpad-Lautrec Rainbow.
The black lines were drawn with a permanent marker and the button is a clear bubble sticker over black card.
I’m not sure about the artist that inspired me to do this. I think it’s probably just an impression left by several artists but even then I can’t be sure.
I actually like this one quite a lot though and thought this challenge was absolutely brilliant…..Thanks Rhi.
Well the upstairs spring clean is done and I feel like a couple of cart horses have done a Flamenco dance up and down me back but boy am I glad I got it done.
There are three boxes of stuff to go to the charity shop and about seven bags of unwanted stuff to go to the tip tomorrow. I shall sleep like a rock tonight.
Now I am just going to tidy my desk and then have a play with some of my new Cricut cartridges as I have four that have not been out of their boxes yet.
Happy Easter to you all.
