Thanks a Lot Card

Here is another card I made using Basic Grey's Green at Heart paper. I really love this paper pad, but it has a lot of purple in it, and that is a color I find very hard to work with, as I am not drawn to it automatically. I thought I would challenge myself here to use purple, and I think I managed!

Technique Tip: I colored in the flower and the leaves using colored pencils. I used three colors for the flower and two for the leaves, blending using the lightest color until I got the look I wanted. It is easy to color small areas like these using colored pencils.
The flower is a stamp by Hero Arts, but I don't have a leaf stamp, so I hand drew those. The sentiment is also hand written. I layered everything with foam tape to add dimension.

Thanks for looking today! Please leave a comment!
