White on Ivory

White on cream is elegant, but difficult to photograph.  This close up photo is a bit washed out to highlight the white tree.

Stamped the trees in Hero Arts Unicorn, a white pigment ink, on cream card stock, and let it dry.  I stamped the sentiment in brown over the tree and colored in a bit with a marker, as the white ink washed out the "s" in thanks.

I have a thing for flat note cards....and always use the heaviest card stock I have on hand, particularly when it is a one layer note card.



Stamps:  Clear and Simple Winter Woodlands and Stampin Up Thank You Always
Ink:  Hero Arts Unicorn, Versamagic Jumbo Java, and Stampin Up marker
Paper:  ??
Other:  We R Memory Keepers Corner Rounder

Love this card and I am glad you explained that there was a tree... so I looked more closely and do see it. Also wanted to say congrats on the miles today and yesterday. I noticed your widget and think you are AWESOME! Keep Up the hard work, you are worth it.

thanks for the comment on the walking. I either get sick, or hurt my back or something and it gets me off the treadmill but I am now back. One step at a time!

So glad to have found you again, I loved your other 2 blogs and have missed you. I totally "get" where you are in life. I have "been there, done that" with Mom and after a couple years of beating myself up and down one way or another I am just now getting back to the business of real life.
There are more good days than bad and my creative side is coming back which is wonderful. I am looking forward to playing in my room again. I have discovered that after a couple years off my tastes have changed so I see a purge coming in the near future. But that is ok I am ready for it and embrace it. Change can be a good thing. I cant change the past nor should I. My mistakes made me who I am today and will be tomorrow, hopefully, a better person.

I'l be casing this for sure! So simple and elegant. And I hear you on thick cardstock - makes it feel 'substantial'!
