Having really loved painting with my DI reinkers quite a bit lately, I decided I would give it a try.
So I dug out my Dove Grey ink pad, a new image and a dash of optimism for trying something different.
2 hours later I was feeling less optimistic!
The card below is the result of my efforts.
It actually turned out far better than it I thought it was going to when I was half way through, but oh boy, it literally took hours to paint it to a stage where I was happy. I think the grey ink pad will be going back to the bottom of my ink pad pile and I'll be back on the jet black again from now onwards.
The stamp was a Xmas pressie from a very dear blogpal who's been a real rock for me this year (thank you so much sweetie), and this card has been sent as a thank you to her. Plus I think she might just be one of a very short list who might appreciate how much effort has gone into this, otherwise very simple-looking, creation!!!
I kept the design quite simple since I know the recipient prefers that style.
Plus I was creatively exhausted from the painting!
