Thursdays "Clearly clever" Challenge

These are my entries for This Thursdays "clearly clever" Challenge

The image was stamped on to acetate and glittered on the back using art institute glitter and dries clear glue. The card background and greeting was made by stamping with a clear versamark ink pad and chalking. The greeting and acetate were mounted onto co-ordinating cardstock using brads for the acetate. This is my first entry into a challenge so I hope they are ok! Good luck everyone there are some great entries!
All the best

Well done for diving straight into a challenge, Ali! :D

Re. your question about spam, spam is basically any unsolicited junkmail, so for example, the one spam comment I have had so far was a link to a 'get rich quick' scheme. I had posted a message entitled about the new movie based on that series about a group of female friends in New York.. won't put the title in case it attracts this spammer again!!.. and he must have been searching for blogs referencing that title.

You will know whether something is spam or not if it seems incongruous. Just hit 'reject' or delete it.

Hmm.. Did you get my comment re. spam? I had a 'mail non delivery' email for it. Very odd.

My rainbow

Your rainbow is strongly shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
