Hi Cherion, I love how you took one of Tim's stamps from the inventor set and made it your own style, using bright colours. Just makes the image pop! LOVE!!!


The "blowing" colors are very very cool! Really clever. And yes, for me the hardest part is stepping away from the project and being patient! Thanks for sharing

Ann b

Cheiron, seeing your colorful creations is always a highlight of my day, and this card was spot on. I love seeing the inventor stamps in a contemporary framework. Your addition of color to the central portion and then overlaying with pumice stone to draw out the dimensions was genius. Thanks for sharing this awesome card.
