then i was tired - but it was too early to hit the hay - so i thought - i'm going to just throw caution to the wind and do a copy. her border is more interesting. i could have easily put more variety in my rectangles. my JC was done without any thought - and i like hers better - but, i think she must take more time. she got out some real gold gouache or something like that. i just used a gold gel pen. and - she always fills up more space than i do - which i like - but i would not say that i like it better than mine. it wasn't an exercise to create a contest - it was an exercise to show how things turn out when you are inspired by something that is steal worthy. tomorrow, i will show step 2 of my inspiration. in many ways, i wish i would have started this when i was not tired - as i think it would have been fun to see where i went with it. maybe i can pick up where i left off.
at any rate... if this knocked your socks off in a negative way, limner - please let me know and i will remove it. or if you think it's fun....maybe you can tell us what you were thinking when you put the crown on the J. to me it looks regal - but maybe you had something else in mind. and what color is JCs truck - i went with green - but there is also red, blue, and cream in the book of stamps.
