Life has been hectic and while I have colored some between, I have not been able to actually complete a project. But here we are.
The line art of this beautiful flower image is by Conie Fong. I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils on sand colored Canson Mi Tientes paper. It was the second time I had tried the Mi Tientes paper and I found it rather difficult to accomplish my pencil to pencil blending that I am used to doing. I did need the blender pencil to achieve the smooth look that I usually get on the Strathmore Paint Pad paper. Though I do love the color tone of the sand paper, making the pencil colors pop off the page.
To complete the little scene, I used brick pattern paper for my card panel and then added the image with a frame created using Gina Marie designs nested stitched rectangle dies. I also added a small strip of cardstock to replicate a window ledge.
Lastly I stamped the sentiment of a small precut tag and finished it off with a bow tied with twine.
