Forward and Through

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by.

I'm thinking of all of you and praying for your good health.

The name of this stamp is Forward and Through
I stamped it with Archival ink while visiting a friend a while back.

The background was colored by inking a small acrylic block, spritzing
and stamping onto the paper.   I added some splatters in the same colors.

It's hard to see in this photo, but there are some score line behind the image
for a bit of added interest.

Thinking of those caring for the sick and keeping the lines of medical supplies,
food and essential needs available so we can be safe at home.
My thought also are with the teachers who are having to learn
to teach their students in an entirely new way.

Let us go forward and through these difficult times.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

VERY petty card Bonnie. Love the image and background. Pretty spatters and yes, I do see the score lines too.

I love your bright mix of colors with the image. I also echo your thoughts. I pray for everyone to stay in and stay safe. It helps everyone on the front lines do their jobs. It sure has brought home how much we rely on those who do those important jobs for us everyday.

"Forward and Through" is a great name for the stamp and for the difficult times we are going through. You are definitely more hard hit down there than we are in Canada. Keeping you in my thoughts for getting through this healthy and okay.

Love your pretty acrylic block background - such a tried and true technique, I must remember to use it more often.

The background is great and goes perfectly with this stamp. A wonderful card, Bonnie. Everyone staying at home often thinks of our friends, those close and far. At the moment, when we are closed in our homes, the distance does not matter much. Be healthy and safe, my dear friend.
