Thanks for everyone for all their wonderful comments on my post yesterday! Definitely helping me get out of my slump!!!
I totally cased this design and technique from the Hero Arts blog. I used stamps from a set called Sweet Blossoms and Swirls by Hot off the Press and created a background, stamping in black ink on kraft paper. I used post it notes to block off the center, and stamped a sentiment from another HOTP set called Whimsy Doodles.
I colored the flowers with Kohinoor pencils, and added some white gel pens dots. and that is it! I love the way the colored pencils look on the kraft paper! Think I will be using this technique again and again! My week off is coming to a close, and of course I did not get done half the things I wanted to .. but a week away from work is good! It must be getting close to the end of summer, because all week the squirrels have been up in the trees above my house gathering, and all sorts of things have been raining down on my roof (and my head when I am outside!)
Hope you have had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend!
