Good Monday Morning! I am not sure how you come up with your card designs and color pallets, but I often will sit down and color several images at once and then will search through my vast paper collection for what I think are the perfect papers to go with my image. Sometimes I will color the same image in different color themes or I will color a bunch of different images using the same color families. This card though was the opposite for me. I saw this paper in Hobby Lobby the other day and this image came to mind immediately. I wanted the colors I chose to make her appear part of the paper but to still stand out some too. I was very happy that I was able to really achieve what I saw in my mind while I was standing there in the paper aisle at Hobby Lobby.
The image is an Elaine Cox image from Sweet Pea Stamps, was colored with Copic markers and all the papers came from Hobby Lobby.
