 I have so enjoyed making these cards .. they are more fun than the usual ones...
Was thinking its  time to  start getting things together for christmas cards.. yikes! where has  the year flown to..

this looks more like the aftermath of a bush fire.. anyway .. Its  photo paper  brayered with yellow. then Tangello  post it note torn to create hills  outline which were sponged on with Desert sand then layered  again b elow the hills and sponged with black.
the sun was created by  punching a circle from a  post it note  and sponging over it. the  trees were  drawn in with a dewdrop  memento black  ink pad.  the card  then  layered on yellowCS and then forest green CS.

time to get on with some more cards

I have only just got back into the swing of things after our big annual concert. must think of some ideas for cards for the little ones in my daughters family day care..
In the meantime i have been experimenting with the Michelle Zindorff brayered cards.. really addictive. this one started out as a sunrise but looks more like the aftermath of a bush fire.
