Dream Big

 I just got a card from my brother which had a terrific color scheme: chocolate, light gray, orange and white.  Sounds a little strange, perhaps, yet the reality is anything but.  So I dashed downstairs and put together a card with the same colors . . .

I thought that it would look neat to have the webbing on the dream catcher be a metallic gold, but that didn’t work at all – looked sleazy, in fact.  So I tried to cover it up with a dark brown alcohol maker.  Guess what?  Despite marketing claims to the contrary, alcohol markers do not cover up absolutely everything.  Nonetheless, my beleaguered webbing went from gold to copper in a sort of reverse process of alchemy and I’m quite happy with the results . . .
