The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn....

This time the challenge over at Dragons Dream is The Thorn Birds. I have no stamps of anything Australian, so I've taken it a little more literally, and gone for thorns and birds :o) I've had a play with my Ecoline Inks and created a background on water colour paper using a gold Krylon pen as a resist. I've overstamped with black archival with stamps from Kanban and La Blanche. My 'thorn bird' is actually a Christmas stamp by Inkadinkado and has been stamped onto velum and embossed in Winter Wonderland. The quote is from the Nat King Cole song and reads 'The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return'
  Quite ThornBirdish I thought (who wouldn't love Richard Chaimberlain)..  click on the picture to make it bigger.
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is to create a hand made background, and
The Sunday Stampers, which is Birds.
Nearly time for Hawaii 5 0 now and it's just getting dark :o)
Thanks very much for looking x

  4. Well. Sue, I thought your "bedazzled" was gorgeous, but this one is even more so! Your background is like something from K and Co. I love the resist effect with the gold Krylon pen. I am learning so many tricks from seeing other blogs. Your interpretation is wonderful. The vellum bird is gorgeous. I've never embossed vellum. You must mean dry emboss, not heat???
