My uncle, my dad's only brother, passed away in the wee hours Tuesday morning. He and my dad were very close. They loved the West, and backpacking out in the back country. I just got this stamp set called In Wilderness and thought it would be appropriate. I used the Michelle Zindorf brayered sky technique. I masked the circle and bison and brayered So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry at the top, and So Saffron and Old Olive at the bottom. I stamped the trees, from Lovely as a Tree. I then removed the masks, sponged a little Pumpkin Pie on the (sun? moon? not sure what I was going for there) and colored the bison with blender pens and my old retired Close to Cocoa ink pad and sponged around the edges with Chocolate Chip. I added some hardware and "rope" and layered it onto Really Rust and a Crumb Cake card base.
I think my dad will like it--he always likes my cards, no matter how they look! Thanks for stopping by today. Rest in peace, Uncle Dick.
