Good Morning or rather afternoon, I guess it is now. It's been a busy week at the McLaughlin household and not much crafting got done. Last night I sat down and did some coloring. I've tried to focus more on techniques lately with my Prisma's. I found a great tutorial over at my friend Dorcas' site for coloring clouds. I've also been working on the coloring challenges Zoe is doing over at Make It Colorful. Last week was to focus on shading, which is my biggest hurdle. If you're in the same boat you might try out some of their tutorials. The thing I have to remember is it takes practice so don't get frustrated if the first couple aren't just right. I've got some great DT projects I'm working on this weekend that will give plenty of practice.
Mo's Digital Pencil Two. What an artist! I love everything she does. Mo's had a sketch for us to follow this week. This is the first time I've colored her and thought she would be great for some spring colors. I'm working on coloring hair too. It's better, but still has some work to go. I've paired her with some papers by Pebbles. I just love those little flowers. I used my EK Success punch to make the border at the bottom. I added a scrap of ribbon from my stash and some flat back pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty(love that store!!!!)
To finish off my card I took a scrap of cardstock and built my embellishment. I started off with two leaves, twisting the stem around my paintbrush then adding a beautiful yellow rose. I love those little ribbon scraps they just add so much and that butterfly was perfect for a spring sentiment which is also from Pizzazz Aplenty.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy your weekend wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
