Background Whimsy using dye ink

This was a tough one for me.  I am not very good with detail work and this technique (from Technique Junkies) required me to outline some of my stamped image with white gel pen... eeeeek!!  I gave it my best shot and this is the result.  I would love to read your comments!!  Thanks for looking.  Oh, by the way, this card is going with a stack of cards I am sending to Operation Write Home, and organization who ships handmade cards to our military overseas, for them to send back home to their loved ones... an absolutely great group!!!

  11. Hi, Found your blog through a comment you made on another Blogger Challenge members blog. Thought I'd stop by and take a peek.
    Love this card. You did a great job with the Gel Pen (I can never get mine to work) and the colors are so pretty.
    Hope you have a great 4th of July.
