Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your week is going well. Things are moving right along with me. Today I may shock you all because I have a card to share with you that wasn't colored with copic markers! Now that you've picked your jaw up off the floor let me show you the card.
I love this image A Perfect Potter's Bench by Lynne Stansbery and think that it looks wonderful just printed off. My first intent was to just add a little color here and there and I didn't want the color to pop too much so I chose pencils over markers. Once I got to coloring it though, I had such fun that I just kept going. I didn't even blend the colors with mineral spirits like I usually do with pencils. This is one of those images that may look intimidating , but the artist has made it so easy with the shading.
My sentiment is a quotation I found by Robert Louis Stevenson and I found it perfect for this image. I didn't add much to it - just a piece of cording tied and a small piece of designer paper. I wanted the image to stand on it's own.
I am not going to push the One A Day in May to you today, but I am going to remind you to join the challenge at Squigglefly's blog! It's a fun one, so go play!
