Mary (you are here)


For today's sample, I pulled out my brayer. I cut a circle first to make my sun and then used a couple of shades of blue for the sky. Sponged in some yellow ink for the sun and then sponged out to make the rays.

I took a post-it note and tore it in the shape of a mountain range. The mountains were sponged with dark brown ink.  Sponged some mustard ink around the bottom of the card.

I stamped my fences in brown and added some trees from this new set. for the trees, I used markers so get the brown & green. Added some birds in the sky and stamped my "Dad" sentiment. This sentiment is from the set we showed yesterday.

That's it for me today. See you back here tomorrow for the final day of the hop. Now it's off to MariLynn's blog.
