I found this image on Digital 2 For Tuesday. Since I am caught up with my DT work, this one is just for fun!
The colors are from a challenge, as is the layout.
Prismacolor pencils are my "go-to" medium right now. I don't use gray or black to make my shadows. I feel using color brings the image to life, and makes it more vivid. Today, when you go outside, look up at the clouds. You will notice that the shadows are not gray...they have color.
Maybe I'll do a tutorial on shadowing with color...what do you think?
Used my Vagabond and Tattered Florals Die by Tim Holtz to make these flowers. The leaves are petals from one of the florals. I fold them in half and sand to make a vein. The gem centers of the flowers are from Michael's.
I've gotta get more ribbon...black and gingham, as I am using this on EVERYTHING! I need more choices.
You would think I have no ribbon to choose from...I just need more black and gingham!
Did lots of stitching on this one. Also used a Martha Stewart punch, and a CTMH cloud stencil with chalks for the sky.
I am entering this in several challenges:
The Ribbon Reel - retro colors, plus a flower and ribbon/twine
Sketch N Stash - Sketch
Art With No Boundaries - The Rhythm of the Sea
Cheerful Stamp Pad -Coming Up Orange

Daisy Doodle - Outdoors
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Baby or Pastel

This sentiment comes from Crafty Secrets Seaside set. I used Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Vintage Photo to distress on this card.
Hope you enjoyed your stay today, however brief. Let me know what you think about a color shadow tutorial, OK?
