Our hospital gives us ever-changing, beautiful sceen savers of nature photos, mainly by a wonderful photographer/human being named Dick Duerkson. In the last few days, the photo has been one (cottonwoods in winter) that is done all in brown tones, with the starkly beautiful white trees. I did it on vanilla cardstock and used "embossing resist" on the trees to make them white, cutting in some little marks to fill in with brown for some relief from the stark white. At the very end, I decided to put a bit of brown embossing on a little of the grasses that I drew...but accidentally put white embossing powder on the chocolate craft ink! Oh well...as Kittie says, "there are no mistakes in stamping"! (:>
Had to sponge a little on the outer vanilla card stock to make the card show up on the scan!

Beautiful, actually I'm speechless. I've been sitting here staring at your card and I simply don't know how to describe how fabulous it is. I would love to try to case you, but I know I'd never succeed. TFS
