My oldest niece is 30 today...gasp! How can that be? Just last week I held her in my arms and gazed into her large blue eyes. Today she's a delightful young adult teaching art in a blue-collar middle school in a very blue-collar community. She loves it and the faculty and students love her for her...enthusiasm, knowledge, personality, and sharing & caring nature.
The snowflakes are from an experiment using hand sanitizer and archival inks (Sky Blue, Hydrangea, and Cornflower Blue) on manila cardstock. I used Tim's Paper Snowflakes Sizzix die to cut them out.
The top layer was overstamped with Artful Tools; 'celebrate' was stamped in Encore's Silver Metallic ink then heat embossed with Ranger's Detail Silver embossing powder. The bird was stamped (Watering Can Archival ink) on watercolor distress cardstock twice and colored with distress markers and a waterbrush. Love the coordinating die! The additional words (Crazy Talk) were stamped in Jet Black Archival ink.
