Jury Duty

I had jury duty last week, so I brought my Prismacolor Pencils along in a baggy, and some digital stamp images. How cool is it to have your images printed out on card stock so you can color anywhere? People were curious, but naturally, everyone was quiet.

It was fun.

Tuesday Throwdown challenge #130 - Frame It 

This image was colored at jury duty. I used mineral spirits on it when I got home , with a paper nib.

I used Stickles in gold to accent the flower.

Using my paper trimmer, I cut a white square background, being careful not to cut into the image.
I then trimmed the image, around the square. I love to cut. It's like therapy to me.

A frame of black was mounted behind the white square.

The image was then mounted with dimensionals on two papers I found in the bin at Card Club. I tore the edges and overlapped them. I used a piece of sheer ribbon as a border.

Three tiny mosaic squares on their edge, dress up the corner.

The sentiment is from an old See-D's set. I sponged a bit of Momento black ink over the sentiment and bottom of the flower.
