Challenge – Numbers

The latest challenge I participated in was the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, with a prompt of numbers.   The only requirement was that one number appear on your work.

Here is my finished project.   It was inspired by the idea that my husband and I are approaching retirement and the number of our age is when we retire is part hope, part mathematical calculation, part wish, and some part of reality of the future thrown in.

  • Ranger Archival Ink – Cobalt, Saffron, Jet Black
  • Ranger Distress Ink – Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot
  • Ranger Distress Stain: Blueprint Sketch
