the journey is the reward...


After all my Paris cards this week, I decided to *travel* to Italy today. I guess I should have told you how I made the background yesterday. I used the A Muse block stamp and inked it with Colorbox Chalk cateyes. I started with the lightest color and worked my way down so that I didn't get any dark colors on my light inks. I was talking about it with Heather and she thought I directly inked the paper. Good idea Heather. So I thought I would that technique with this card. I stamped the bridge right over the ink. I thought I would color the bridges, but decided that it looked just right so I just added some yellow Stickles to the lights.
Don't all these travel inspired cards make you wanna take a little vacation?!?!
All images and notecards are A Muse Artstamps.

Very cool ... that's a neat way to make a sunset! I like the gondolier in the midst of it too! And the bridges! PERFECT! Just wait! ;)
