The Northwoods, but I'm a day late. This is a card I made for my nephew, who just graduated from the police academy. We are so proud of him!
Before I get to the tutorial, I want to give you a little health update to explain why my posting has been so sporadic and will continue to be for at least a few more weeks. I had surgery on my ankle a few weeks ago and I'm having to keep it elevated to control the swelling. That means my crafting time is getting done in fits and starts because I can only spend a little time stamping before I have to go back to elevating the foot. With what little time I can manage right now, I'm having to focus on meeting design team assignments, rather than make projects for the blog.
If you're wondering about what happened to my foot, I rolled my ankle from stepping on a rock, while hiking last August. Apparently it caused some tears in tendons, a hairline fracture in one of the bones of my foot and the ankle bone even had a small hole that was punched into it from the bone above. Luckily, the hairline fracture healed on it's own, but the tendons needed to be repaired surgically and the debris cleaned up from the ankle bone. I have another two weeks in a cast, and then I should get to go into a walking boot and allowed to put a bit of weight on the foot. Things should get easier when that happens and hopefully, I can get back to my craft room!
Now to my card...
Memento Summer Sky ink around the mask.
The Northwoods, using Memento Tuxedo Balck ink.
Just a reminder, you can click on the photos to see them larger.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
