Nourish the Love...

"Let Love Grow"

Happy Birthday Rod!
Hope it's a beautiful day for you - fly and enjoy your retirement! This kinda reminds me of when I was young and such a tomboy - remember the duck we had that would swim in the wheelborrow filled with water?

I used a shiny copper CS from my endless stash for the base of this A2 card.  The panels on the front and inside are Neenah 80lb 'Desert Storm' - it did not photograph true color because I had to increase exposure to get a decent shot on these rainey days of April.
Inside before sentiment added

The image is from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil Too.   Copics and Prismacolor Pencils were used to color her.  Diamond Glaze was used to create water coming from the can onto the petals [look closely, you can see it!].  White Copic Opaque was used on her Farmer-John snaps/buttons.  The embellishment for the panel include the free-hand lines drawn with a Black Micron 0 pen and then the dots on the corners and cascading on the top left are merely punched circles from the same copper CS using a 1/4" and 1/8" punch.  This is one of my favorite ways to add texture - fast, easy and matching embellishments.
