I just realized today that it is the end of the month and thanks to the 4th of July, I have Friday off from work! Does anyone have anything exciting planned? I am sure we will grill out with my in-laws, that is what we normally do. Kip's dad has a birthday on the 2nd so a lot of time we combine the two celebrations. Thanks for stopping by tonight!

Flowers in Vase
Evidently I am in a green mood! This was another image that I colored in the Beginning class this weekend. This vase was a little on the tricky side to color, to try and create the shadows to keep the appearance of the rounded parts of the vase. It took me a little while to get that right, or at least where I was happy with it. This class was mainly about laying down color and shading with the Prismacolor pencils. Since I have no real art training, getting the shadows and highlights in the right places are a little difficult for me. I am not sure who makes this paper, but I do remember getting it at Michael's and that it wasn't a common brand that I have seen before. I have been reading Cheryl's blog quite a bit and she makes the most gorgeous bows for her cards. Mine is nowhere near as pretty as hers are, but I thought this card could use a bow right there in the corner. Stamp is from Lockhart stamps, paper is unknown, ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the little pearls are Dew Drops.
