Great Dreams

Today was a day for running errands, but I was determined to get one card made also. I think it turned out to be a beauty. I've watched Tim Holtz with his tools and inks and non-stick craft sheet ink up lots of tags and then I've lurked on Michelle Zindorf's blog soaking up her brayer and inking techniques. She also uses some yellow sponges that you can get at the dollar store and cut up, they're great, I don't get any hard lines if I start inking off the sheet. They have lots of admirers and I'm one. Practice, practice practice, loving those inky fingers!
This was a wonderful sketch very challenging. I didn't think I could make these colors work, but as I laid everything out I do believe it's very pleasing.
