A Cloak of Indigo....

I made a couple of Twinchies for the challenge on the Small World of Inchies where the theme this week is raven.
I used a variety of stamps, embossing, doodling and transparencies (which I printed and stuck down with glossy accents).
The small raven picture I cut out of a book and the larger one I drew. I read a poem about a raven which referred to it as a cloak of indigo. I think that describes it pretty well.

I went to see Mamma Mia on Tuesday - it was absolutely wonderful! It's not meant to be viewed seriously or with a critical eye and it's not about whether Pierce Brosnan or Julie Walters can sing or not - it's about the whole cast giving an exhilarating performance and making you want to join in with them. Everone came out of the cinema laughing and singing - it does your heart good!
It's filmed on the beautiful island of Skopelos.......where I want to live one day. I've visited the island twice and can't wait to go back again. Hope it doesn't get too popular because of the film!
Go and see it....'and let the joy wash over you'!

I stumbled on your blogs, and find that I love the colors and especially your ravens. I have long been a fan of the quick and clever bird! Yellowstone Park has had to warn guests to watch their backpacks because the resident ravens know how to unzip them and steal their lunches! (One of my old poems about the raven's smaller cousin, the crow is on my own blogsite). Just thought I'd say Hi! ~Donna
