Journey

It's been such an honor to guest design for Our Daily Bread Designs.  My final card uses the Mountain & Mountain range stamp sets & one of the dies from Beautiful Borders. I watercolored Distress Inks weathered wood, frayed burlap & crushed olive onto a piece of watercolor paper before stamping the mountain scene in Distress Ink walnut stain which is also used for the quote. I added splotches of Distress Stain tarnished brass with my water brush.  The colors look more blended & the green isn't so stark in real life--couldn't capture it with my poor photographic skills--LOL!  Many thanks to ODBD for giving me this opportunity & to all of you who brighten my day with your sweet comments.
