My "Van Gogh" Card

I purchased a couple stamps at a recent yard sale and had a few minutes to play.  This stamp was wood mounted and is by Stampourri! dated 2002.  It would NOT give me a good image so I ripped it off the wood and mounted it on cling cushion.  Made all the difference!  It's called Sonoran Nights.

I black embossed on some glossy paper then colored with Copic markers.  The markers streaked heavily but I like the effect! The background paper is by LazerLine and is only available at the AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ as it was made to order.

My close up photo washed out the yellow of the moon and stars along with the green in the cactus, to some degree.  I used my clear Wink of Stella brush on the moon and stars and the effect was very subtle but almost dimensional.  Pretty cool to my way of thinking and a perfect image for southern Arizona.
