Meanwhile, here are two cards I produced over the long holiday-blizzard weekend:
The design for this card is from a pad of beautiful scrapbook papers. There was no color within the flowers or leaves. I think I'm getting a little better filling in color with colored pencils.
The card stock is black, but I enhanced it with alcohol inks and ink pad ink and a silvery color that shimmers. The center of the card is basic. It's the background that makes the card stand out.
My son turns 39 (the age of Jack Benny!) at the end of December. I thought this just about says it all about aging. LOL This card was colored with Copic markers. I find them a bit difficult to work with, but would love to take a class in using them to learn more about them.
I'm not sure that I'll post again this year. I'm hoping for a better 2011 for everyone.
