Today is the second challenge on my new challenge blog - The Library Challenge. The book is The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien and you can take inspiration from the cover or the title or the story.
Despite having had this book on my shelf for many years, I have never finished it! I was given a copy by my Auntie - it was one of her favourite books and for years I felt guilty that I just couldn't get into it. Recently, I spotted it in the audiobooks section of my local library online service so I thought I'd give it enough try, this time, just listening. But no, beyond the description of The Hobbit and his house that I'd read many times, I just did not enjoy the story enough to finish it. And yet, every time
I think of The Hobbit, I think of my lovely Auntie (now gone) , so perhaps I should stop feeling guilty and just enjoy the memories.
For my first card I was inspired by the woodland setting . I stamped a Stampscapes wood onto watercolour paper and coloured it with Brushos. Then I used gold watercolour paint to colour parts of the bark., to give it a magical gleam. I mounted it on a green card base which I'd embossed with a folder.
