Gracious - it's been a while since I've posted... Life has been crazy busy here, but in good ways.
I have been organizing and sorting so much with the move of my craft room that I was having a serious problem tapping into my creative side. I was fighting everything I tried... And even this project, I really didn't like in the beginning... But, I knew that if I just kept working on it, something would come together.
So, I really felt like it was an exercise to get my creative juices flowing again - ending up with a card I really like. I started with the stamped image from Tiddly Inks called Wren Birthday Girl on a printed patterned paper. I colored her up with my Prisma colored pencils, then just started doodling after that. I finally worked on finding a background for it and found this great DCWV collage paper that worked so wonderfully for the background.
The bulk of this is just doodled, but some other colorants were added as well... metallic rubons, pigment powders and more colored pencil... then a white gel pen was the finishing touch.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Just Add Ink - Just add a fun background
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Digital Tuesday - Birthdays
Make it Monday - Linky party
