COLORING ON PATTERNED PAPER

Therese Calvird's card last week inspired me to create my card.  I had never tried coloring on patterned paper before and she made it look so easy.  Then along came the Inspired by All the Little Things photo and Addicted to Stamping's "make your mark" challenges and hence my card.  I will also add this Kathy's coloring challenge and The Flower Challenge "anything goes".

I stamped Altenew's freesia on the patterned paper from their Refection kit with black ink and heat embossed.  Colored my flower with Prisma pencils in the blues and greens and softened the color with the light gray pencil.  Added the sentiment and a few clear drops and put it on a white card base.  And happy with the results.



Thanks for visiting today and always enjoy your comments.
