This is a second career for her and she is coming to the end of her time as a student. Life has made her very wise – and I will miss her insight very much.
I wanted to make a card for her – something everyone she worked with at the Church could could sign. A little remembrance of her time here.
I decided to try to create a vintage feel (so here is the hybrid part) – I look a plain colored photo of the church and “photoshopped” it to a sepia tone. I then aged it a little more with Vintage Photo distress ink. What do you think (LOL)?
Then I covered the whole “book” with some patterned paper from TAC.
I stamped images around the edges of the pages in burnt umber Palette and colored them lightly with prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits. I just wanted to give the pages a little color, but still leave lots of room for people’s messages.
Hope she likes it!
As for stamps – yikes! I pulled out every nature stamp I owned I think! I know there are some from TAC, Lizzie Anne, Serendipity, Impression Obsession, Stamp Camp, Biblical Impressions…. (have I mentioned I have a lot of stamps!?)
If there is an image here you want to know about just leave a comment and I’ll find it for you.
