For this first card I was trying for a landscape effect. I had a specific person in mind when I made it too, my son, who is making good decisions even when he knows that some of the adults in his life will not agree . . . in short, he's becoming an adult and I'm very proud of him. For the landscape I stamped the image in brown stazon and then used watercolors to blend in a sky and the purple for the mountains. I do enjoy the color purple but don't use it enough.
For this second card I made a polished stone background. I elongated the stamped image a bit by coloring in with a black copic marker, it just seemed to fit the circle frame a bit better . . . I think I still need more practice with my copics! Thanks for looking, enjoy hopping and good luck!
Here is the order for Thursday, August 12-Regal and Proud
