Nate is Eight (Celebrate!) and a Fail...

74 and sunny! Aaaaaah! Of course, Friday, it will be 52 and raining, but that's spring in the South. At least it isn't snowing like it has been at my parents' house in Texas (?!)

So, I've been playing with the fabric challenge at Embellish Magazine. I needed a card for my nephew's eighth birthday, and I wanted to join in on the sketch challenge at PCP and the Try a New Technique over at SCS. (Last week - make your own DP.) I made the red paper by cutting a few biohazard signs with my Cricut - the cartridge was Indie Art - and using them as masks. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. The number/letters are from the Cricut, too.

So, now for the fail...

I stamped this Unity (My What a Beautiful Tree) on canvas and used some Dabbers and a brush to color it in.

I really do like how it turned out. It's a little big, though, (4x4) and, for the life of me, I can't get it onto a card in a way I like. The idea was to put it with a bit of map (for the Cinema challenge) and the other colors for the fabric challenge and add "Life's an amazing journey" for the sentiment, but that's as far as the mojo goes today. Oh, well, maybe later...

Thanks for stopping by!
