The challenge today on the 365 Card Blog is ONE stamp and ONE sentiment, no patterned paper (yikes). Actually, I think this is a fabulous challenge as there are so many images that can stand alone in their impact and beauty. Amy Tsuruta's card is one such example. I wish I had more time today to create other cards, but this one will have to do.
I chose the famous Katsushika Hokusai wave painting from 1831. And while mine is nowhere near the masterpiece of the original, I love the power that comes through in the monochromatic scheme. The image is from Stamp Francisco and the sentiment is from a local craftsman who is, sad to say, no longer doing rubber stamps. I used two colors of ink, both from Nick Bantock. Cerulean Azure and Deep Turquoise.
I love art, how about you?
