Lovely as a Tree - Inspired by Michelle Zindorf -

       Happy Saturday Everyone...I hope it's bright and sunny where you are because it sure isn't here...Where's summer?  I have heard on the news that some areas of the southern US are experiencing drought conditions.  I sure wish that we could move some of that liquid sunshine from here to there.

I am sharing a card today that is inspired by Michelle Zindorf.  Michelle produces beautiful and very artistic work using the brayer technique and/or sponging technique.  I have admired her work for sometime and have attempted to use the sponging technique for this card.  This card also used the reflection technique and Michelle has a great trick using the plastic piece form the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  You can also use vellum to transfer your image to your card.
