Tyger, Tyger

The Outlawz challenge for 22nd January is to take inspiration from William Blakes poem The Tyger, written in 1794.

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat.
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp.
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears
And water’d heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

At the moment I don’t have access to my normal craft stuff due to having decorating and new carpet so I chose an image from Patties Creations and coloured with water colour markers. I still need to get the hang of blending. We have to take inspiration from the poem, mine was very simple a tiger and flames for burning bright. The flames are a piece of vellum wrapped around the card. A greeting Burn Bright meaning shine and be authentic.
