Joys Come From Simple and Natural Things

Today's post is a quick one! My daughter and husband are off on a backpack trip to Utah and I am painting the dining room as a surprise, and have to get to it before they get back!

My card today is such a serene scene.  It is a 4" x 4" stamp from I Brake For Stamps called Joy Comes From. I added some sparkle with my Spica Glitter pens to the sky and the water. I had to change the lighting a little so you could see it. Click on the photo below for a close-up!

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with various Copic markers.  I kind of wanted a watercolor look, so I let the coloring bleed into other colors. Take a little shopping trip to I Brake For Stamps today and use this code for 10% off! SAVE10JUDY
