Our friend lost his Dad last week and this is the card I made for him, I went with using the coloring cards I bought, thought it would work well for a masculine sympathy card. I just matted it with some brown cardstock and then added it to the background paper, the shine you see in it is this paper has copper embossing in it.
Creative Expressions coloring cards, colored w/markers
DCWV - Natural stack paper
Sharing a few pics from the Canyonlands National park Utah, after we left the Mesa arch area.
In this first I just love how you can see the shadows of the clouds on the rocks, even though it was cloudy you could see forever.
In this next one if you look to the left side you can see the river running through.
Check out this fence using dead Juniper trees, isn't that cool. Yep that's my hubby ahead of me. He brought his tripod with him at this stop. I have never used one, even when he says I should taking pictures of the sunset.
In this next one I was going for getting all the texture in the rocks.
It is kind of hazy looking but that is the sun rays shinning through, that was cool too :)
Can you see the people on the path down on the right side, that gives you a little idea of the size of this place.
I have way too many pictures of these Juniper trees but thought I would share a real twisted one, with the rocks way in the background.
Yes it did rain on us while we were there, in one of the times it was just sprinkling I got out to take a picture of how different the trunks of the Juniper trees look once they get wet, love how it brings them out.
Next we headed for the Grand Canyon.
Thanks for all your sweet comments on my pictures, still learning the camera, I don't remember the technical terms of what I am doing but I am understanding more, LOL. Hubby is glad that I am enjoying his hobby with him.
Thanks for stopping by,
