JOY

I have been wanting to try my hand with coloring with colored pencils and finally gave it a whirl.  Inspiration is from Yana Smakula's card using a black background.


Used my Prismacolors on the EH mondo poinsettias which were first embossed with gold.  The sketch is from the new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches - turned the sketch on its side tho.  Added some Nuvo gold drops, a glitter sentiment and mounted it on a white card base.  

I am entering this in the Freshly Made Sketches #313 challenge and also CAS Mix-Up (glitter, stamping, embossing, die cut, pencil coloring).


Thanks for stopping by - love to read your kind comments.
