I decided to participate in the Hero Arts Color It challenge, and this week’s CPS sketch:
So I decided to color my little heart out! I wish the shading was easier to see in the photo, especially because I worked so hard on it! Oh well! I like putting darker Copics colors on an acrylic block and then picking them up with a lighter shade. It helps since I only have 24 colors.
This card has some of my Archiver’s goodies on it! The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket! I finally own some! Woo! The sentiment is a new Hero Arts clear set that I got that is mega cute called Sky’s the Limit. The background on the kraft notecard is the antique brocade Hero Arts cling! Woo!
I used a lot of distress ink on this card. I used antique linen all over the sunflower rectangle. I used antique linen, broken china and shabby shutters on the sentiment label. This is pretty much my version of shabby. This card feels very “Fall” to me. It may not be the traditional colors, but sunflowers, shabbyness and blue skies equals Fall to me! 🙂
