U is for..........................

Ugly ..............

As I went through all my U words to see what I could find for this Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn, the  words that stood out I seemed to have already used the stamp images for other words... Umbrella....I had used my Umbrella Man for "weather" so on sorting through my boxes of stamps I thought Underwater................now I know I have a mermaid and some fishes somewhere............well they seem to have swum off ......when I came across the stamp I have used.....




when I saw it I immediately knew that it fitted the "ill tempered" part of the definition....what do you think lol



She really really looks miffed at something, I have kept it simple so not to detract from that face!  Page was distressed with antique linen ink and washed with water, Stamp is a PaperArtsy set I have had since I began stamping many years ago and had forgotten about....shame on me...... I stamped in versamark and embossed in black, corner is one of Tim's stamps which is embossed in black.

I found this a hard challenge as most of the stamps I had already used fitted and it was hard not to take the easy option and use them again......I really LOVE Umbrella Man and it was sooooo hard not to do " Umbrella" lol

Hope you have enjoyed looking and I must pop over to The Craft Barn and take a look  at all the entries I'm very behind this time.

till next time

  3. Ah, yes, she does look a bit ill-tempered and ugly! I love the simplicity of your page design. I think that stamp with her expression would make into a fun bunch of cards.

  7. Perfect for U challenge. Glad you didn't use Umbrella as I suspect there will be quite a few of those especially with the weather we have been having! Your not as late as me. I have my word chosen but must get a shifty on or I will miss the deadline again. Thanks for the reminder. Hugs Mrs A.

  18. Oh Maggie, she does look stern! That is a great word to use. I thought I was going to be the only upholstery page but by the time I posted it I had been beaten to it! I was going to do UK and maybe Underwear but didn't have time.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! I feel like adding to the note to say that I have tried all three comment options and the other two were worse behaved than the one I have!
    (People keep trying to helpfully tell me if I change the comment to a different option it will sort it).

    Now I have to try and keep up the standard of the page I just did, oh boy, and I am thinking I should put some of that on a card too!
