Grand Adventures...

Hello friends!  Norine back again with a couple of quick cards to share with you today!

So my oldest son is beginning an adventure where he's chucking it all and taking to the road for an indefinite period of time.  Just him and his dog, in a van.  Till the money runs out?  Exactly the thing any mother of fully grown children delights to hear, amiright?  But I'm being supportive.  I even made him a card!  

I stamped the topography background stamp from Neat & Tangled onto watercolor paper, and painted  with a mix of blues and greens from the Gansai Tambi watercolor paint palette.  As it dried, the colors would lighten so I added a few layers of paint.

I found some tags in my stash and cut them down to fit the stamped sentiments, also from the Topography set.  I stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink and then tied the tags with some jewelry making twine.  I finished it up with an assortment of sequins like these and these.  The card above uses Lawn Fawn's Blue Jay cardstock for a base.

I'm not sure which card I'm going to give him, but if anyone else's adult child is embarking on a similar harebrained escapade, you can have the other one. ;-)

Have a wonderful day!
