Surrealism is Destructive...

September 10th 2011


This is my card for the new Octopode Factory Challenge "Quotes". As you can see I've used Lily's Salvador Dali image and have added a quote by Salvador himself.


My sister is a Salvador Dali fan and as her birthday is coming up I made this especially for her - LOL I hope she doesn't visit my blog!!!!


I made the background with wastercolour pencils and stamped flourishes and spots over it. The images were coloured with Copic Markers and have been stuck on muslin and then onto the background along with a couple of skeleton leaves. I'm really happy with the purple & green colours!

I have so much to say about this card, in fact too much to say lol.
I've had the privilege of visiting Dali museums, in particular the absolutely incredible museum in Figueres, words cannot describe the experience.
Dali's moustache would be twitching with pleasure on viewing your card. Whacky, quirky, individual art with a message.
Wishes
Lynne
