|inside of card|
When the image was dry, I used my Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils to add even more details, and shading. I built up the colored pencil until I had achieved the look I was going for. The background is done with colored pencil, then some ink spatters.
I stamped and gold embossed the verse (Penny Black special thoughts set #30-338). On the inside, I used distress ink pads with the lanterns stamp, and distress markers on the 'Have a Wonderful day (Penny Black gratitude set #30-105).
This flower lanterns stamp will be getting lots of use from me. I have several stamped panels on my desk, waiting for me to add the finishing touches and make cards.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Flowers (yes, it is a flower)
Seize The Birthday Challenge - Anything goes
Simon Says Wedbnesday Challenge - Anything goes
Time Out Challenge - Celebrations/one layer
Simon Says Work It Wednesday - What you're working on
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I'm back to 'somewhat normal' after hubby's recuperation from his eye surgery for a macular hole. Now, since it is STILL raining, it's upstairs to my little craft room for some creative therapy. Maybe I'll even see you back here later. If not, definitely tomorrow!
