remember the bright red and pink envelope that christy robb made that also inspired the cool nameplate that cathy o'rear made? well, i knew i was going to eventually do my version of christy's envelope. originally, i started with the versal name and then it reminded me of christy's envelopes, so, i just did all this from memory. i did not go back and look at christy's original. and i still haven't, as i write this. i did not make the cartouche for the stamp large enough. and i may not have any color on this....just very unsure of where it is going, but, liked the idea of showing some of these works in progress.
a couple days later+gold gel pen+colored pencil=ho-hum... or maybe a little better than ho hum. sometimes when you are stealing ideas you have to do your homework and actually look at what you are stealing...other times, a vague memory is enough.
