I am back to stamping and loving it. This is one of two cards I did today. (I'm saving the other for tomorrow since I know I won't have time to stamp then.)
I was inspired to get back to stamping after my sessions of sewing by a request for Birthday cards to be sent to a friend of a friend who is serving in Iraq. Also the SCS Sketch Challenge #170 was one I liked and decided to try. This is the result.
I love the images in this set from SU called For Father. I is in the Occasions Mini catalog which in effect now. I satmped the image using Timber Brown Stazon and before I colored it in using my watercolor pencils I sponged the background around it with Old Olive Ink. The "celebrate " sentiment was embossed with gold powder over Encore gold ink.
Other than I now notice in the scan that the strip with the image on it is a bit crocked I am happy with how the card turned out. I think my eyes are crocked and it takes a scanner or a camera to show up that flaw. I just don't see it when I look with just my eyes........
