MILFORD INSPIRATION

I have been happily pinning some lovely inspirational photos on Pinterest (you can see my board HERE), when a gauntlet was thrown down the other day! I pinned a photo of Milford Sound, mainly for the gloriuos colours and the reflection.  I absolutely had no intention of recreating , or should I say, putting my take on it.  HOWEVER, a fellow Demo (you know who you are!) said she couldn't wait to see what I came up with.  Well, I have never been one to resist a challenge.  Out came my sponges, my brayer, my beloved post-it-notes and my inks.  Here is the completed project:

Do you think I managed to capture the essence of this gorgeous piece of New Zealand?  I hope so, although it was a huge ask!  My harshest critic (aka husband) reckons it is the best yet.  High praise indeed!

  2. Oh so that's what it looks like? It was pouring with rain and blowing a gale and we never got to see what Milford Sound looked like in all the tourist brochures :) Now, in all seriousness, this is another stunner from you, Paula. Glad to see those 'pins' going to good use!

  12. WOW!!!! I stumbled upon your blog this afternoon when I was waiting at an appointment. I was so glad that I could access the web with my phone because before I knew it I had spent a full HOUR looking at all of your AMAZING designs!!!! I can't believe how beautiful your cards are!!! So many of them are little works of art! I didn't leave a message earlier because I find it hard to use the tiny keys on the phone, but as soon as I got home I got online so I could tell you how much I enjoyed being made to wait today!!! I have to go fix supper, then attend a meeting, so I must get off the computer, but I'm anxious to have time to look at your cards on a full size screen!!!
