I believe this is the first stamped image that I've worked with that caused me to feel such sorrow. When I gaze deeply into this image, I can't help thinking of sad times that I believe I was much like this puppet angel looks, drifting through some days as though someone else was in control of my thoughtless motions.
Here's a view of Ching-Chou Kuik's Puppet Angel in the Circus image that I've filled using Copic colors.
A bit of faux stitching borders my layers of scraps of My Mind's Eye and Graphic 45 papers. Bazzill brown forms the base of my card. A single My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Union Square "Moments" button accents my Stampin' Up! Simply Said sentiment. A few Recollections Mulberry Paper Mini Roses adorn the upper corner of my image.
This image could easily be paired with a "hang in there" sentiment for someone you know who seems down in the dumps. Perhaps a "thanks for being there" for someone who has helped you through a rough time. When you want to tell someone that you're sorry for not quite being yourself, this image will help convey that message too. Hmmm. Maybe it's a good image to surprise someone who doesn't like Monday mornings.
