Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a card made with a beautiful die-cut sent to me by my good friend Barb. Isn't the die-cut gorgeous??!!
I coloured it with my zigs, and then went about figuring out what to put in-behind. Nothing seemed to look right. A few days went by ... then a week. At the same time, I was playing with Stencil monoprinting and made this pretty background. Couldn't figure out what to do with it, so it was sitting on my work table as well ... for several days. Then today I glanced and saw both of them sitting there ... I had a light bulb moment. :) They work so perfectly together. I was so excited I had to show hubby right away. He loved it and said he thought it was like looking through trees at a city landscape in the distance. It kinda does! :)
I have to say that I was impressed with his interpretation. :) He is a mechanical kind of guy, not artistic at all. But he has been exposed to so much art because of Jeremy being an artist and art teacher and me with my cards, that he has developed a love of all things artsy. :)
Thanks to all of you for coming by for a visit.
