If it's not too bold to say it, I think I have a bit in common with Ardyth. I love techniques and color. Maybe the difference is I create backgrounds for stash, then figure out how to use them. So that's where my card comes from today. I liked the idea of simple shapes, one inside another, staying in a certain color way. I dug through my stash and found some pieces in red, orange and yellow (I'll get to that in a minute) and diecut deckle edge rectangle borders from each piece. They fit tightly inside each other, unlike Ardyth's circles. One piece is a gel print using a Carabelle stamp, the next is a stenciled piece using DOx (I think), the third piece is a random alcohol ink background using the Pearls. The last piece I cut is in the center, it is from a photograph of the Dale Chihuly ceiling at Bellagio in Las Vegas. My daughter visited there years ago, took the picture as a panoramic and I asked for a copy. I just recently came across it and put it in my unorganized stash of treasures. I find it remarkable that I found it fairly quickly. I like to organize but my stash has gotten out of control.
This is also for yesterday's IC, inspired by this Dale Chihuly calendar: https://www.calendars.com/shop/chihu...r/202200002231. I love glass of all types and he fascinates me. That's why I chose the colors I did and computer generated a quote from him. The mirror rainbow cs is a nod to the glass. It's funny how you can see all the colors in this photo, as I mostly see warm colors irl.
Ardyth, it was pure pleasure to honor you. I'll be back again this week.
