"Island Clouds" by Joan Strawhacker, PA 1998

Medium: Dye based colours on glossy paper.

Stamp Credits: Dark Cloud 189F, Palm Cove 096G, Palm Cluster 100D, and Row Boat 166A by Stampscapes.

Note: Received this card from Joan with a catalog request. At the time she's only been stamping for 2 months. I think this is a terrific card if she had been stamping for any amount of time. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the background was briard giving it that split fountain of blues and violets. What I like, especially, is the use of the "Dark Cloud" in how freely it's applied --giving the sky a "motion" to it's already billowing appearance through it's various values. -K
