Orchids in the Rain

This is an image from Aurora Wings called Orchids in the Rain.

I haven't been making a lot of cards lately, but I have been coloring a bit still. So I am collecting a stack of images that are gathering dust. This is one of those images - although it hasn't had much time to gather dust - because I just colored it. :-)

The hair color - well tomorrow my youngest is getting her hair "ombre'd" with Blissful Blue. ACK. So we were looking at the different possible colors. LOL... This is BG1x colors. 

The flowers are BV1x with some RV11 mixed in and the darkest color BV08.  Based on the flowers, I am entering this into the April Challenge at Kit And Clowder on Flowers.

Lotus Anything Card

Hi guys!!! I'm Back!

and I actually made another card. WHOOOOOOP... It has been a long while because things have been nutso. But This little beauty was a great image to practice with and adding the dots was a fun twist.   This Large Lotus was stamped with Memento. I colored it with only three markers - the BV17, BV13 and BV11. I then used a white pen to make the little white dots, and a gold pen to outline the stamen. 

I wanted to keep this simple, and I think this is perfect for an "anything" card. It works for thank yous and birthdays and how are yous, etc... I like these as you can add a sentiment at a later date. 

I hope you all have an awesome week this week. And practice your craft - whatever your craft might be.

I am entering this into the Kit and Clowder April challenge on Flowers. :-)

I hope to see you again soon! TA!

So, I am off today and making a boatload of cake balls for fun. But before I get going I wanted to share my creation using the SCACD Brave Hearts collection young lady called Be Fearless.

She is resplendent in greens and pinks (and a little orange,... but I hate admitting that it worked here). for the skateboard I used the same technique as I did for hair to make the woodgrain. It worked out really well all that flicking here and there.

I really think she is so sweet... but honestly the thought of skateboarding scares the crazy out of me. And I have a LOT of crazy in me. LOL... So saying be Fearless is so right here.

So off to the kitchen to fearlessly make cake balls. :-)

Have a great weekend all!
