Thinking of you..

I made this for a friend who's been having a crappy couple of weeks. I finally inked up Trendy Trees & played with the Stamp-a-majig (SMJ). I'm not totally up on the SMJ, but the best way to find out is practice, right? The tree on the right is effed up a bit, but I just re-stamped the tree (after stamping off so it was a bit softer), and it's not as noticeable. I even used a 'tree top' for the sun! A bit of versamark, saffron ink & irridescent ice, and voila - SUN! Then I took my sponge daubers and touched up the card for sky, bit more sun & ground & voila! I probably should've flipped the ribbon to the kiwi side, but meh. next time. I'd love to do this for a workshop, but I think I need to play with the SMJ a bit more still.. I even stamped the sentiment oval so it wasn't bright white against the kiwi swirly bit. Oh, and the sentiment is stamped using markers so I could break up the long sentiment (from sweet sentiments, hostess set) into 2 lines.
