This card is for the Technique challenge 105, Blurred Vision, and Limited Supply, 104, Scraps 'O Ribbon. It is *Guy* birthday card, for my husband's nephew, who is an environmental lawyer.
The main panel began with very pale alcohol inks on white glossy as a background. Then I stamped the *stream in the snow scene* in craft spots, using watercolor brush directly on the stamp to blur the image. I did the same thing with the cloud stamp and the grass, but didn't blur the deer or the trees. The whole panel is clear embossed several times.
I stamped the Cheesecloth background on the bashful blue panel in Encore Gold, although it is difficult to see in the scan. I rubbed gold metallic rub-ons on the *Celebrate* charm, secured it with Light Blue Organdy ribbon folded lengthwise twice, and attached with brads.
Finally, I stamped and gold embossed the *flourishes*, and popped everything up on thick Dimensionals.
Thanks to NancyRuth for her marvelous ideas for creative settings for photographing cards. Nancy, you are truly an inspiration!
Thanks for looking! Maddy
