Telling a Story
A while ago, I posted this card as part of a challenge to use dots.
One anonymous reader left a comment that she liked it in an off-the-wall way and that it triggered a story in her head. I thought that was funny, because when I made that card, it told me a story too and today's card is the story. I saw the chevrons as water and stamped the Impress stamp in Kaleidecolor Caribbean. I then masked the top row of the chevrons, stamped the sun in Kaleidecolor Desert and used the same large solid circle to make the 'land' in garden green. I used another mask and a little Christmas tree stamp from an old Papertrey set - these trees are just two different lengths of the tip of that stamp. Added some sparkle to the water, as you would get during a beautiful sunset and voila - a lovely Happy Summer card for my daughter's french teacher who tends to go to the wilderness in the summer (I don't blame her at all - she deserves some peace and quiet!). I'm still trying to get the sentiment right - when you put "Happy Summer" into the Google translator, you get "Ete Heureuse" while my rusty french mind thinks it should be "Bonne Ete". Any help would be appreciated!
