A little time

Hubby and I had taken a little time off between Christmas and New Year and so of course my pencils went with. Our visit to southern Arizona proved to be a chilly escapade, so we stayed indoors quite a bit - me coloring and him reading. It was wonderful. This card is the last one I made on my return with the images I had colored while away.

This is also a Conie Fong image. I decided to go rather pastel on it, thus the light colors on her dress, the white bear and her light colored wings.

I colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I completed the card by cutting an oval out of a piece of patterned paper and gluing the focal image behind the paper. I then adhered the panel onto a 5.5x5.5 inch cardbase.

I completed the card by cutting the word Birthday out 3 times, twice out of regular white cardstock and once out of white glitter cardstock and stacking them on top of each other with the glitter cardstock on top. I stamped the word WISHES on a piece of white cardstock and trimmed close to the word. I glued both the die cut and the stamped sentiment onto the card.

I completed the card by adding 3 flatback pearls to it.

  1. What a cute little character and beautifully coloured too. Thank you for taking part in the January "Love To Craft Challenge" . DT Sam x

  2. Hello Monica welcome to my challenge. I do admire anyone who uses colouring pencils as their chosen medium. I just cannot get on with them myself. I'm ok with watercolour pencils as I can use a brush to blend. Your colouring is ace I love the teddy bear and the shading on her dress. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.
