Oldies but Goodies

DSC_0462 I still love the old techniques best.

This is simply stamped and stamped off on either side. Then, using a torn post a note, I masked the bottom and sponged in a couple layers of ground. The sky is also sponged using saffron and rose.  The bottom paper is a paint sample but it is textured like suede. I can't remember where it came from. The base  color is saffron and is sponged in the rose very lightly. A little ribbon and it's done. I added a little bit of glaze pen over the tree in the foreground as I wanted to give it a bit more importance.
