We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
"Little Gidding"
T S Eliot

Cling Time!

When I was creating a background for an earlier Craft Barn challenge (see here), I used glossy card with Distress Ink and water spritzed cling film scrunched on top.

Whenever I do the cling technique I end up having a fight with the cling film, and get quite exasperated, so I created a few different coloured backgrounds at the same time.  My resolution of not letting unused stuff languish at the bottom of a box made me make some cards!

This one is on coated textured card.

Both stamps are from Designs by Ryn - which, by the way, will be available in this country from Oyster Stamps.

Back to glossy card - with a more subtle cling effect.

Teasel stamp by Woodware.

And staying with glossy card, this is even more subtle.

Wading birds stamp is from a Stampin Up set.

I think I've mentioned before that I like the works of the poet Emily Dickinson; I found this one:

Eden is that old fashioned House
We dwell in every day
Without suspecting our abode
Until we drive away ...
