Petunia

Good Evening! We just got home a little while ago from Indiana and I wanted to make a quick post before I crashed. Wow what a trip! My card tonight uses one of the images that we colored in the Karen Lockhart class, this is one of the images that we colored in the beginning class. During the classed we focused on coloring techniques, not card making, so I have several images ready to make into cards. I don't know the name of the stamp but it is a Lockhart stamp. I was impressed that I was able to get this much shading done with just pencils and no OMS and blending stumps. Image is Lockheart stamps, paper is making memories, ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.

I can't wait to show you some of the other things that I learned. There were so many new techniques and cool ways to use my pencils. My brain was full of information by the end of the beginner class. The second class was mostly new information and then the advanced class was all new to me. All in all, it was worth the trip. My mom found a Flea Market/Antique Mall that she wanted to go to that a little closer to Indianapolis that we thought we would be and since I knew there was an Archivers there, we went ahead and drove into Indianapolis to find it. I have never been to one of those stores before. We found it and did a little shopping  there too. I am beat and headed to bed now!

This is lovely, Gina! The shading is fantastic :) Can't wait to see your new tricks!!

I've been inspired by your personal challenge to use the supplies that have been around for awhile. Isn't it funny what you remember getting!

Beautiful card and what a fabulous class you were able to take! I think I need to find a coloring class myself so that I can actually color things well!

The image is lovely and it is colored so nicely. I like how you framed it with the DP down the sides and anchored the elements with the soft organdy ribbon. Very pretty card.
