Another Plastic Wrap Sunset

I know that I have done one of these before, but I have been playing with the technique and really like this one better. I used plastic wrap scrunched up to put on the ink, mixing each one in with the next for some nice blending. The stamp set is The Angel Company's "Anchor to the Soul", which is one of my favorites. This particular verse has brought me great comfort and peace through some tough times over the past few years. I made this card for a swap with my fellow Angels. I used a mask with the stamp, then colored the image with my Copics. I framed it with blue CS cut with a Nesties frame. and added a few brads. I am entering this in Samantha's Being Blue Blog Hop. If you haven't visited Samantha's blog at Scrapmaster's Paradise, you are really missing out on a lot of fun and an amazing young lady filled with energy, creativity, and fun!
I am healing nicely, although I will be seeing my primary care physician tomorrow for what appears to be a little infection at a couple of my incisions. Other than that, I am feeling good. I have one more week off of work before I go back. When I get back I only have one week of class then three weeks off before the fall semester.
Last week, my sister came for a visit for a few days. She lives in Wisconsin, and drove down just to see me. I was so happy to have time with her. We managed a little time for fun, even went to the Oz Winery in nearby Wamego. What an amazing little place! They make their wines right on the premises, and they are wonderful. The wines have such cute names as "Squished Witch", "O-E-O", and "Drunken Munchkin", just to name a few. You can check out their website here.

Love the effect you got with plastic wrap! When I read the sentiment, it reminded me of a radio commercial here in this area for a hospital and transplants. A voice of an older woman is telling her story of waiting for a transplant and she says "My battle cry became 'Be still and know that I am God.'" That is where I first heard this Psalm. Great card for it. The winery sounds like a blast, and those wine names are a hoot! Hope you are doing well. Best, Curt PS (OMG - do you know what the word verification word is below???? I swear I'm not kidding. . . lickingu! LOL OMG I can't believe I have to type that!)
