Sweet Stamps- For Dad

For this weeks challenge at Sweet Stamps, I decided to try brayering with my Ink Spots- worked like a charm : )  Inspired by Michelle Zindorf, I rolled some color onto smooth white cardstock and created a serene card for the challenge.

 I grew up with the Kankakee River in my backyard- water scenes are always relaxing and soothing to me. If I close my eyes, I can hear the water flowing downstream........

Supplies from Sweet Stamps that I used on my card:




I bet you noticed we have 1/2 the team posting together on Tuesdays, and the other half posting on weekdays.
