It has been hard for me to find time to craft lately, and though I start out with good intention each day I can never seem to fit it in! Like so many, I'm sure, it is my down time where I stop thinking about everything else and just enjoy some time out :)
I actually coloured this flower image from our Squared Posies set last weekend but then never worked it in to a project..
I stamped my image with Versafine ink on watercolour paper and gave it a minute to dry before I started to colour. I used Derwent Inktense pencils for this one and wanted to try and give it almost a painted image look so went for lots of layers of colours! The beauty with these pencils is that if you allow them to dry in between layers you can go back and work in more colours without disturbing the first colour...love this feature!
The coordinating cardstock was also made from these pencils by drawing simple lines and a broad brush.
Just wanted to show the colour with this shot :)
So does it look a little like a painting? Not sure, but I do know that I had fun coming back each time and adding just a little more colour and shading :)
Have a great day everyone and I hope to see you tomorrow for our next AnnaBelle Sketch challenge!
Hugs for now,
