Atomic Tangerine

#CYW #Atomictangerine

Atomic Tangerine Rose created by inky in Photoshop elements


As they shook up the bottle of fizzy fruit juice

A fantastic reaction began

Bubbles rose up to the top of the bottle

Bursting to escape

Crazy idea – of the kids – was releasing the bottles

Cap – with the addition of air – reaction was complete

Destination for the neon orange liquid – No one knew – they all

Dived for cover – as fizzy orange rain fell

Expectation – the vegetable patch

End result – over Grandpa’s prize white roses

Getting Arty

#Freedomofexpression #Art

A response to the latest challenge from Iscriblrs Freedom of expression series

(and yes – I will be getting arty with his one!)

A Garden image with red and blue flowers.  Sandstone Sundial at its heart.
A piece of Acetate Art by Inky – “Garden (Sundial)

A pencil and paper – the start of the process

Composing where the individual flowers went

Encapsulating the sandstone sundial at its heart

Transferred to hardened plastic

And painted in translucent paint

The final result ? A stained window without glass –

Exceptional

“Eyecatching”

Roses to Catch the eye….by Brian F Kirkham

They say Diamonds are a girls best friend
but a floral bouquet always catches her eye
brightly coloured tokens
from a friend or significant other
always brings a smile
if not the tongues wagging in the office

Running through a rose garden

often ruins your clothes

Specially if you are wearing a woollen jumper

expect those knitted specialities to get

Snagged on a spike or two – creating a hole that’ll need to be patched

Red

Rich is the primary color

enveloped in the romantic notion of

dozen red roses

 

Royalists adopt this color up and down

England, Scotland Ireland and Wales

Draped in Silks Satins and Tartans alike

 

Round sporting stadiums too

Everyone cheers in northern cities for

Dozens of teams donning Red Shirts

Shocking pink

#coloryourworld #cyw #shockingpink

luminosity released this

colour on the world

to highlight a word or two

is brilliant

carnations and roses in this colour

beautiful

but was it fair to plaster it

across soccer and rugby shirts 👚

up and down the land

I prefer to see pink in my strawberry ice cream 🍦

but now it’s everywhere…shocking!
