Au Revoir


A nice co-worker is leaving us this week and I thought it would be nice to give her a card to wish her luck.  She is resigning to her job to open a little Herbalife shop.  She was doing great as a side job but now she will be fully dedicated to it.

I'm using this stamp of me (LOL... I always say this is me because of the wine glass and the long curly hair...), but she kind of also looks like this image even though we don't look alike in person.  But she also loves wine... :)



The sentiment if from another kit but thought it was cool and don't need to add cliches such as "good luck" or "see you later", etc.

I wanted to color the background and the image with imperfect look since I used gelatos (with my fingers and brush), distress inks, and watercolor pencils.  I love this self made up technique I've been using for a while by sponging circles to resemble lights and transparency.  Love it.





I am sure she will love this card and that she is facing a bright future.

Will share this with Unity Stamp Co. and will link to its Fun Hop.  Since they changed it to Tuesdays I haven't been able to participate that much, plus I was kind of inactive the last month, so I can't wait to be part of it again.  Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win since the prizes are randomly for the linked projects and for the commenters.

I will also link to the new Be Inspired challenge that started today. 

Have a great week!
