Hi there! I'm slowly getting back into my art studio after the holidays. When I saw this week's cue word for CASology, I knew I had to play along. My brother-in-law recently retired as Director of State Parks. He has a birthday coming up and I thought the cue word 'forest' was a perfect fit!
Following in the footsteps of many bloggers this year, I'm reaching for some of my older stamps. This pretty pine tree is by Hero Arts. It's stamped with Ripe Avocado ink (PTI) with some first and second generation stamping. I inked the upper portion of the panel with a soft blue then die cut with my Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Circle die. I cut some extra layers of the outer circle for more depth. This nifty pine embossing folder was also a good fit. The DeNami Design sentiment is on a PTI Tiny Tag die, also one of my older dies. In fact I think it was one of the first things I purchased from PTI!
I would love to know what you think of my new blog design! My profile pic needs to be updated. Hubby has been working lots of overtime. We'll get around to it one day. Other than a bit more mileage, I look the same LOL!!
