This is for the Ways to Use it challenge and we are to find inspiration from the World Wide Web. I often look at Webshots photos for inspiration. Here’s the link to my inspiration for this card and actually the one reason I bought this TAC set.
My web link: http://www.webshots.com/g/33/624-sh/12265.html
The image is stamped sun first using the rock and roll technique but just slightly. The tree is stamped on then I sponged on color across the sun although it wasn’t the true pink I wanted it looks okay. Then with a sponge ink refills and alcohol (polished stone techique) and I added the remaining colors from light to dark.
The image panel is heat embossed with Clear Ultra Thick powder, repeat once.
Edges of the yellow are tool and ink distressed. The long panel is three separate pieces taped together. Image and oval panel are raised with foam tape squares.
It doesn’t show real well in the photo but the background is stamped with the tree backgrounder from CHF.

This card jumped off the page at me - not only because it's absolutely gorgeous, but also because my dd and I are currently working on the Springbok puzzle of this photo (1000 pieces). Beautiful work!!
