Links that form a chain of love. The Beauty that only God knows...



I just love doing cards like these. The ways of nature are endless and the beauty is everywhere and it is in all the way we can express it on paper. I thought I would share then with you. Look at your card and see where you are going to want your focal point, that is going to be you lightest area where your eye will look first. It is a good idea to have your card size a little bigger because when you are all done you will want to trim the edges of your card, gives it a clean finish. I used sponges on these cards. Always start with your lightest colors, blending softly, mostly take your time and get a good blend to the colors and then go on to your next colors just a little darker working toward your darkest color. Add your finishing touches the many different types grasses, tree branch, a silhouette. Any dye base ink works fine. This was done on matte paper. If you have a question let me know.
