Tuesday Trigger Time!

Hi again!

Yes, it's my second post! Since it was the 4th of July yesterday, I finally had the chance to play in my room...and I took full advantage of the time! :) I'm sharing a card I made for the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger challenge. Here's my card and the challenge badge.

For this card, I used watercolor paper to stamp the Stampendous Star Lilies with Versafine Ink (brown). I stamped it on the side that doesn't have quite as much texture so that the image would stamp a bit better. Then, I used my inktense pencils to color in the image. These pencils are great for coloring and I love that you can add different shades and blend in the color. For the leaves, I used 2 different shades of green. And on the petals, I used an orange color and then mixed some yellow, too, for a different shade of orange. I added a soft blue color for the sky by using my distress ink and sponging in the color. I then used my watercolor brush to smooth out the distress ink, too. I mounted both the image and the sentiment on some tangerine-colored pattern paper from My Mind's Eye and I punched a border at the bottom of it. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I finished off the card with a simple ribbon at the bottom. It's always so much fun to color in images using my pencils--it's easy and looks great when you're done!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
