It's not a Zindorf!

Well as you can see I am still 'practicing' and learning. For #1, USE ONLY STAMPIN' UP Whisper White. I used cheap Walmart and it does not brayer correctly! The tree is an old Art Impressions borrowed from a friend and since I did not have a tiny owl stamp, I printed it from my computer directly to the paper. I stamped the tree and embossed in black, colored it then used the Versamark pen to go over the tree and owl with clear embossing powder. I masked off the moon with the 1 3/8 punch; lightly brayered with Bashful Blue & Bordering Blue. It is distress with Black (SU). I put some So Saffron on the moon for color. THEN... I badly smudged where the words are so I had to put the words on a mat (stamp is unknown). It was a comedy of errors but turned out OK so I decided to post it anyway. I read somewhere most art teachers tell you never to throw away your mistakes but FIX them so this is 'fixed'. Michelle Zindorf would probably laugh at this attempt but I decided to share it anyway! LOL Have a GREAT weekend! The weather is gorgeous here today! Just having fun and until next time, Happy Scrappin' & Stampin' Nancy

I just found your blog and am enjoying your very creative designs. I do think you underestimated your talent on this one. I LOVE IT! As Priscilla Hauser once said there are no mistakes only happy little accidents waiting to be turned into creative opportunities. You took complete advantage and it is stunning. Wish we lived closer, I'd love to learn from you!
