Always Love You February 23, 2015

Well, between frigid temperatures and other household woes, I wanted to create something spring-y and fun to lighten the mood!  This adorable chickie by From the Heart Stamps fit the bill perfectly.

What a fun card to create… I started out with the image printed onto Cryogen cardstock.  Then, I used a combination of Portfolio and Prismacolor watercolor pencils to color the image.  I added some Wink of Stella clear pen to the top of the bird’s eyelids and to the flower petals, as well as to the pearl necklace which I left white.  I used some Fired Brick distress ink around the edges, and I trimmed it with some twine colored with an RV19 Copic marker.  The background is from the Basic Grey 6×6 paper pad called Highline.  This paper pack is full of fun geometric designs, and it was hard to choose one for the background of this card, but I thought these bright colors played well with the image.

I will be entering this in the FTHS progressive challenge.
