Earlier today I watched a video by Karen Hightower from Gina K. Designs where she colored in a floral image using colored pencils. Well, I had not worked with colored pencils for ages so I decided that this would be a new way for me to get my muse working better. So with that in mind I created this card. And I must say that even I am impressed with the way this card turned out.
The lily is from the Gina K. Designs Thank You Friend stamp set. And the sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Elegant Florals 2. I used my Misti and took my kraft card stock and ran an anti-static pad over it and then with Versamark inks stamped the lily image. I then added Gina K. Designs white detail embossing powder and heat set it. Then I took my Prismacolor pencils and colored in the lily. Once the lily was colored the way I wanted it I then took white acrylic paint and mixed it with a bit of water and using a fine brush tapped on some white specks.
This kraft panel was layered onto some Gina K. Designs Plum Punch card stock and then added to the white card base. My sentiment was stamped with Gina K. Designs Plum Punch ink onto white and also layered to some Plum Punch card stock. I wrapped some white and kraft twine around the sentiment panel and added a heart charm. This was then placed also on the kraft panel. The last thing added to the design was a plum colored rhinestone gem.
I will be adding this to the following challenges:
Mod Squad Challenge
Double D's Challenge
