Fall Card


My grandmother used to tell us we had some gypsy blood in us, so this quote has been one I've been wanting to use for a while. I computer-generated it for this card.
I stamped the trees (Northwoods) with black Staz-On on a glossy sheet which I had applied alcohol inks to. The eye (Hampton Arts) I overstamped with black Staz-On where the moon used to be. The background paper is gorgeous in real life with tiny little orange crystal like things on it.
I'll be sending this to my older sister -- I think she'll appreciate the message.
