Sending Peace and Strength


I fell in love with this image from Power Poppy Stamps called Olive and Oak. It dances with the beauty of Autumn for me. The fresh air, the cooler nights, and the colours - Autumn is a magical time of year. I only used my Prismacolor Pencils mixed with Gamsol to colour this. As you can see from the picture below, I used a lot of colours to achieve this look, and I added a pop with my matting choices. I added a few sequins (of course) to finish ... thanks for having a look. 

I have added my card to these challenges: 

  


My pencils, cardstock and sequins that I used. Yes, I used all those colours - 16 colours I think.

Oh, Kia, this is absolutely gorgeous, and your coloring is exquisite and perfect! I love the tones you've chosen, and the layout is perfect with the sentiment placement, sequins, and the wonderful double-matting. Stunning, sweet friend! You've really made this image shine! Hugs!
