This is a long ago standard technique that has been around for a long time. I recently made a few backgrounds using that technique. Tonight I was doing some tidying up work – not really but finishing some Christmas cards I started a couple of months ago. Every year it is my goal to have Christmas cards finished early and before Thanksgiving. I have never made that goal! But this year I just might! I have 18 full cards made, and 75 focal images colored. I am not sure just how I will use those 75 images in a card design, but they are all colored! And those are just big steps towards being done, I am pleased with myself.
So in doing this tidying up stuff, I came across the piece of polished stone and thought to myself I should use that tonight on a card. So I then searched through my drawer of pieces of “card starts.” Do you have a drawer or box or envelope of “card starts?” So with the elements “found” I put together this cards. The focal image is colored with water color pencils and blended with an aqua pen. I did have to stamp the saying fresh tonight. J
