challenge. I have been experimenting with using gel medium to add images to wood. I painted gel medium onto the chair image from a Teresa Collins paper, then adhered it to a wood tag. After it dried overnight I wet the paper and rubbed it off. The image is left on the wood. Very cool! I used the tag to present a gift: the ring I made with the black resin flower. Some crackle paint and bling made it shine!
I thought of my dad when I came up with this card to enter in this Moxie Fab challenge. This will be my second Christmas without him. We were always travelling for the holidays, either him to see us or the other way around. Thus the map I used to make the truck. In 2009, however, I chose to stay in PA instead of going home. I reasoned that it was my daughter's first Christmas and we were moving back to Texas in 6 months, so we would spend 2010 with Dad. No one expected him to pass away suddenly in April. I miss him terribly, and wish he could come home for Christmas...
