Well, all the antiques were assessed this morning. If we sell all the antiques at the price we are asking, we will break even with the cost of the assessment! Oy Vey!!! It needed to be done though for transparency sake in probate. AND we are closing in on 10 000lbs to the dump! I'm sure we'll surpass it tomorrow when the discards from this morning's assessment are taken away.

THe colour challenge in Splitcoast this week is Bermuda Celery Hunters. Betty is coming up with some amazing colour combos, and this one really grabbed me. I really love Karen Stolper's images for American Art Stamps and the image I used here is Bouquet. I coloured the image with prismacolors and gamsol. The shading around the edge is done with copic markers. The golden glow (cute, eh?!) around the image was done with shimmers paintz - I used Sunny here.

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs, Grow in Grace. I stamped it with black ink and used a fancy tag nestability die to cut it out. The chrysanthemum looking white layer behind the image was made using the large scallop octagonal nestability die, cut twice and layered. It's a very cool effect that I will have to use a smaller image later to show the effect better.

Have a marvellous day!

Man! I thought I'd read every post you've made - but then I see "transparency sake in probate". Whatever's going on, I just pray God's protection and provision for your family. Hope you'll be sharing good news soon.
My heart is with you guys.
