Soaring Eagle

I made this for today's sketch challenge such a cool sketch! At first I was thinking what am I going to do with this but it was perfect for a scenery shot. And I knew I had the perfect stamp for creating a beautiful sunset scenery shot, my Daily Bread Designs, On Eagles' Wings stamp set.

I brought my brayer back out and tried a different colored sky this time, I still need a ton more practice but I am really enjoying the learning process!! Thanks so to Michelle Zindorf for her tutorial on SCS!

Not too sure if you can tell in the photo but the images are spritzed with 2 colors of glimmer mist, in real life it kind of gives the sky a coppery glow, so pretty.

This card makes me miss my Dad so much, it would have been perfect for Father's Day and my Dad loved Eagles! Maybe the girls and I will put it inside a balloon and send it up to Heaven on Father's Day as a gesture of our love.

Supplies: Our daily Bread deigns, On Eagles' Wings, Baroque Motifs, black, pumpkin pie, really rust and white cs, black, really rust, more mustard, pumpkin pie, cranberry crisp, and summer sun, inks, copics, white singlo gel pen, cuttlebug, glimmer mist (gold and coffee), brads, sponges, brayer.

I agree -- this is a showstopper -- and one of your all-time best.
Great job.
Yes, the balloon idea is perfect... or if he were a religious person, leave the note in a church, so more folks can enjoy your card!

Gorgeous Kelly! One of your best ever and I love to see you come out of your comfort zone and away from the ribbon for a change (I love how you use ribbon but I like this piece).
