It'll be Okay!

This week for Color My Heart, we are working with Goldrush, Honey, Crystal Blue, and Pacifica.  The colors reminded me of a sunrise I saw the other morning.  I may not like everything about the climate or scenery in Oklahoma, but you can't beat their sunrises and sunsets.


I feel like I'm channeling this card; however, when something works it works. 

The supplies are simple...two sponge daubers and the four colors in dye ink.  I started with the Honey first and worked it from the bottom edge toward the center.  Using the same sponge dauber, I topped the Honey with Goldrush. Then, using a different sponge dauber, I repeated the process with Crystal Blue and Pacifica starting from the top edge and working toward the center. To make my black tree and sentiment stand out more, I used pigment ink.  The land was hand drawn using a black marker.  The stars were dotted on with a white gel pen.

So simple and quick!

When I first got the Keep Your Chin Up stamp set (tree and sentiment), I was pretty sure I wouldn't be using the "It'll be OKAY" sentiment...and then my friend's son crashed his car.  It was bad.  And yet, miraculously, he not only survived the crash but the ensuing fire that engulfed the car.  They have a long road to recovery ahead of them, but it looks like he will have no permanent injuries.

It'll be OKAY, indeed!

Until next time,
Becca
