I'm not sure if you've noticed but I'm not on as many design teams right now, we weren't sure how much time and traveling we will have to do for my husbands prostate cancer treatments so I didn't renew my design team commitments. I didn't want to disappoint anyone by not meeting design team deadlines. We've had an out of town appointment almost every week for several weeks now and they will continue until at least the end of April when he has the Brachetherapy. There will be follow up appointments in the future too. I do have good news about his prostate cancer though, we've been told it's in the beginning stages and curable.
Praise God! My Dad died of prostate cancer March 14, 2008 so initially this diagnosis was devastating for me.
On to happier things...
Not being on as many design teams has given me more time to color and play with stamps and images that have been waiting for me. I've been enjoying coloring very much, practicing shading and trying out new color combinations.
Have you ever had to color the same stamp or image several times in different colors?
Ahhh, me to...
This is a background stamp and takes quite a bit of ink to color, the larger the image the more difficult it is for me to get the shading and blending smooth. My R27 went dry and I had to wait for a refill to finish. I've found a couple of places to buy these stamps, the first is Peddler's Pack and then E Bay. I really like the way the artist has shaded these apples using black dots, I don't have to decide where my light source is coming from. I've been working on making my coloring of objects more realistic.
Do you think they look good enough to eat?!
