Inked the entire circle stamp with bisque - then did a little rock and roll into gray ink. Also inked a crackle background lightly with gray and stamped it onto my cirlcle stamp. Then stamped to cardstock. Lastly stamped in my Organ Mtn background and Desert foreground images and attached my piece to dark gray card base with gray eyelets.

Coolio - you're really digging back into the past with adding eyelets too - which is something I keep meaning to use more. I love the way you added the crackle stamp - kissing meets rock 'n' roll! What a great card for the challenge - thanks for playing along. I love the way it looks like a snow globe, almost, with the trees in the globe and the foreground plants as a base.

Fantastic card! I love your soft shades and graceful rocking! This is a beautiful scene and makes for a very versatile card. The texture your crackle background is prefect for this gorgeous desert scene!

I'm with foxy67, It reminds me of home. I grew up in the Northeastern corner of Utah. We border Wyoming and Colorado in that area. Also I, too liked that you added the eyelets and used the kissing technique to add your crackle background. It's a really beautiful card! And proves you don't need lots of bright colors to make something beautiful!
