...I have a card to share!
Our trip to Iowa was brief but fun. Stephanie was surprised to see us there (we all squeaked out a few tears) and the party was a big success. I'm glad to be home though. Travel with the dogs is always a bit nerve-wracking and this time was no exception. Thank goodness they are learning to sleep in the truck and drink water out of cups! LOL
I've been pulling out some older stamps lately and I was a bit nervous about inking this one up again. I LOVE the fishing Thomas Kincaid image from CHF, but I am always a bit intimidated by it.
I figured since I was going Copic crazy lately, I'd just continue on in that vein.
I stamped the image with Memento London Fog to get a softer impression which helps to create that soft light in the background. I then started laying on the lightest base colors. This image was so much fun because I could add TONS of color by layering on darker and darker inks. Just look at how bright and vivid those flowers are and yet how soft and foggy the background is. And I have to say... I'm so happy with how the water turned out. Moving water is SO difficult to make look realistic. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with the results.
I think it's time for me to break out the checkbook and shop for another Kincaid stamp or two!
Hugs to you... thanks for stopping in today!
