Magnolia-licious Challenge blog had an Inspiration Challenge this week. We were able to look at a photo and make a card using a Magnolia image from what inspired us from that photo. For me it was the COLORS of the pink, yellow and a splash of BLUE! At first I thought surely I can't use the blue..... But after the card was finished I LOVE IT! haha...... Again I used my Prismacolor pencils to outline and shade with. I used my stump and odorless mineral spirits to help move the pencil line for a shadow look. I sprayed the frame and starts with GRAPHITE colored Glimmer Mist. Sentiment is by Hero Arts. This card will be going postal Monday to my friend, Alma in St. Marys, GA to help her celebrate her birthday. Thanks for stopping by.

I DECIDED TO GO WITH A VERY SIMPLE CHRISTMAS CARD THIS YEAR. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE ALL MY CARDS IN 2 DAYS. AND THAT FELT WONDERFUL! I ALSO DID NOT USE UP TONS OF MY SUPPLIES OR TIME MAKING THEM EITHER. SO MANY TIMES OUR CARDS WE'VE SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS MAKING GO TOSSED INTO THE TRASH BY RELATIVES AND FRIENDS THAT JUST DIDN'T REALIZE WHAT IT TOOK TO MAKE THEM THAT SPECIAL CARD. SO...... THIS YEAR I WENT SIMPLE, BUT STILL HANDMADE AND PRETTY TOO. A LITTLE CRYSTAL EFFECTS WENT ON THE RED BERRIES TO GIVE THEM SOME SHINE! AND OUR ANNUAL LETTER WILL GET TUCKED DOWN INSIDE.
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TO SEE ME.....

I have played with my prismacolor pencils after coloring my image with copics to do some shadowing. I love this look on an image. I plan to keep playing and practicing it.
Thanks for stopping by.
