I'm back (sort of)


Hello all. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I am still dealing with bronchitis and still felling sorry for myself. In any case, I thought it couldn't hurt to post a cheerful card with the hope that some of it will rub off on me. Today's card has Penny Black flowers stamped with VersaFine black ink onto white cardstock. I allowed the ink to dry and then colored the flowers with Prismacolor pencils. I spent the time to blend my colors together using only the pencils instead of using a blender pencil or gamsol to smooth the colors. I added a ribbon and part of another Penny Black flower to finish the card. It has been a while since I did any coloring that didn't involve Copic markers. It was good to play with some of the old favorites.

The colors are gorgeous. Please tell me you didn't create this when you were sick. Then I'd really have to admit you were the crafting queen. --mp

Hey Michael,
Sorry I haven't called you back yet. No, I didn't make this card while I was sick. I didn't do much of anything the last few days. Still, feel free to call me the crafting queen any time you want!

Oh gosh, poor you, you've been sick for ages! Glad you could make a little something though - this is so fresh and happy and your shading is amazing!
