Going a little dark here! Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome once again to another week in the Bombshell Stamps blog hop! I wont blah blah too much as I'm having one of those days...so I'll post a poem I found and I hope it fits the card! Feeling a bit "dark" today! ;)

The theme of this weeks blog hop was Pencil Me In! We are suppose to use pencils to color!!! *GASP* I am so bad with pencils but it was a nice change! I used my Reeves watercolor pencils to color this image. I also decided to do something challenging...make a CAS card! Yes...this IS CAS to me...lol! I wanted to pile more on but stopped myself before it got crazy!

Anywho...make sure to check out Bombshell Stamps! I can't stress enough how awesome the stamps are! Give them a try!

~In A Future Time~
But humanity never gets beyond the caterpillar stage--
it rots in the chrysalis, it never will have wings.
—D. H. Lawrence

Spanning the distance between the amoeba
and the stars--
how far we've come
on our dazzling chariots of thought--

Though at times some blood is spilled
to correct some intolerable Wrong,
our souls will become more pure,
as we aim toward a higher Good.

Yes, how far we've traveled
from our animal hearts
our earth-bound leash,
from the whispering grass
the dreaming coelacanth--
advancing toward another world
less known--
the worm softly singing in our ear.

Lifted up
out of the warm, dark ooze
into the clear, strong light--
time faithfully sliding forward
the universe pulsing in our radio telescopes--

Proud, emancipated, we worship tomorrow.

Make sure to visit the rest of the Bombshell Hotties and leave them some love!

I love this Gabby! Look at that wonderful layout, and your coloring looks like you used markers instead of pencils, they are intense!! Love the black flourishes, they are very seductive. ;)
