In the Studio

Greetings on a cold, wet spring morning in Chicagoland!

I've been playing a bit more again, in between "work". Last week we went to a wedding of a friend's daughter. (We're at that age where the children of our friends are getting married!!!! :-) Instead of buying a card, I decided to make them one with their names and the date of their wedding on it. I did this with pointed brush (of course!), sumi ink and hot foil pen for the dots on Arches Text Wove, then mounted it to some Arches Black Cover for the card stock.
