A couple more tries using dye inks and sponging, and distress inks...gave me beautiful backgrounds, but the stamping...yikes.
I decided to give it one more try, and that Misti really made the difference. I stamped the treeline several times using Ranger Archival black ink. Those trees needed to be really dark and solid to contrast with the sky. I used distress inks in Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender, and Spiced Marmalade to create my sunset.
It makes me happy when the idea in my head actually looks like the card in my hand!
I am back from California and had a wonderful time visiting my Dad. Its always a bit emotional when it comes time to leave, and this time was no exception. I miss my Dad, and am glad we talk, text and face time to keep in touch as well as play in the same poker league on line.
Jack and Digger are cute as ever, and have grown to be quite good hunters...I fear for the bird population; and the lizards...so many I saw scrambling around were missing tails...My Dad rescues them and puts them back outdoors when the cats bring them in. Here are recent pictures of the boys, while not siblings, they are very close in age...a matter of maybe a week. They are the best of pals.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
