Just a quick post tonight to share a card for a friend at work. I received the happy task of making birthday cards for everyone at work and love it! This one is for a male co-worker who enjoys the outdoors...I hope he likes it.
I love the look of sponging color onto SU's glossy white paper. The first time I tried it, I was so surprised that I could use Classic Ink without it rubbing off. Here, I sponged Daffodil Delight, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie for the sky as well as Old Olive and Always Artichoke for the land. A 1 3/8" circle punch provided the mask to create the setting sun. Early Espresso provided a deep rich brown for a stand of trees from Lovely as a Tree. So glad that set made it into the new catalog again--it's a classic.
The other elements are easy enough to figure out but I do have some "contraband" products in use here from PTI. Just adore their woodgrain impression plate and the sentiment is from a fillable frames set. Thanks for looking...cheers!
