...and this was seriously a challenge. I am entering this into the monthly Lily Pad Card Challenge. I am trying to get back into this card chain.....I always loved doing it when Deborah used to host it on her blog and for whatever reason (and I'm sure there are lots of them!) I have fallen off the card chain challenge wagon. I am glad to have gotten a card done for this month but found the color scheme really hard....I mean REALLY HARD! And actually, I wasn't rocking the sketch either....oh well, sometimes that happens. I DO like this card but think that I would do something different....maybe a smaller flower or perhaps change up the background to blue...I don't know....anyways...here's my card. I hope that whoever gets this card enjoys it!
I used Hero Arts for the large flower image. I also used a Jill Foster technique of coloring the image with Faber Castell Big Brush Markers and then highlighting the image with white chalk pencil.....I will be the first to say that Jill does it MUCH better than me but I'm working on it! Thank you for stopping by! I always appreciate your comments!
