For a Friend

Hello! Thanks for stopping by today. I tried a new technique that I read about today. I found this technique on Jennifer McGuire's blog. She calls it Negative Space Coloring.

I colored the background with 3 different colors of Copic markers. I think I need to practice this more. After the background is colored I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. The image is from a retired Gina K stamp set. The sentiment is from Simon Says and is heat embossed in gold also. I mounted the image and sentiment on white fun foam which is attached to Spellbinder's Scalloped Rectangles. The card stock base is a lighter blue to pop the colored background.
I am entering these challenges:

It is snowing tonight. There wasn't anything in the forecast so hopefully it won't last long. My FIL will be visiting this weekend. Hope you have some fun things going on too.

this is beautiful. great technique.

good for you on the flex and strength class. i used to go to a stretching class at our older adults community but now that i'm working, can't make it... and boy, do i ever need it. i can barely squat anymore. it hurts to even try to pick something up from the floor. geeze louize! put myself on a low carb diet. want to lose 10 lbs before i call my doc on my leg. i'm hoping the wgt loss will ease the pain somewhat.

have a great weekend. feels like winter is back for a few days. this is the kind of winter i like.... a little cold; a little mild, NO SNOW!!!

hugs :)
