A card for Lantie
This is a card I made last night for my niece's b'day in October. I am hoping that she will love it. As she seems to be a bit of a nature girl. I decided to base this card on two challenges. Penny Black's colour challenge of Chocolate, lemon & pink. The second is a sketch challenge at Carol's Sketch Fun, which I discovered through Kath's blog. So thank you Kath :D.
As usual I am using up my scraps. Although the chocolate piece was cut from a brand new piece of Kaisercraft Dutchess collection paper. Naughty I know. But other than the basic brown bazil, it is all I had. I used watercolour paper & my Prisma colour pencils with a Copic blender pen on the stamped image. Just in case you haven't heard of this technique here is what I do. I colour my image using Lisa Spanglers tips then I use a Copic colourless blender to go over the coloured image. It seems to help the colours blend together better. Or I could just be doing it wrong ;). I use this method on lots of my cards not just with the watercolour paper. Well I am going to do some of that dreaded house work so I'd better go. Have a great day/night & thanks for stopping by & your lovely comments - TTFN
