Island sunset

I've had this image colored for a while - this is a stamp from Rubbernecker that I picked up at Stampfest 2 years ago (!?) when we were home on furlough...the image is called Palm Tree Morning. I painted it with Twinkling H2Os, and it ended up so bright that I wasn't sure what to do with it when I was done, so I tucked it away. Some layers of textured white cardstock ended up to be the perfect base. I scored the edges of the accent panel with my Scor-Pal. The sentiment is from The Angel Company. My finished card measures 4"x 8".

The angled shot in the sunlight shows off a little of the texture and sparkle.........
Love that little sentiment. Not even sure where I got it from.....ebay maybe? Ebay browsing is one of my greatest vices. Sigh.....

I'm savoring this scene, can you tell? I finally broke down and ordered 4th grade school books for the next year... I have been putting it off for months for fear of the import fees, but I can't wait any longer. 3 more weeks until we hit our stride again, with students arriving and life returning to crazy normalcy.

Sigh again... These lazy, reclusive days have been so nice.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
