UPDATE:  This card won the Artist's Choice Award at Aurora Wings!!  Thanks Mitzi!! I am so honored to be in that group of chosen artwork by you!!

Hi, There!

I love Pansies!  Actually all flowers and these were a challenge to color but I found some great paper for inspiration and had so much fun!  The paper is from DCWV Four Seasons Stack.  It was difficult to cut the paper apart but had to be done for the card.  The image from Aurora Wings is called Pansy and I have had this image for a long time.  Sometimes I need to keep looking at a digital image and "digest" it before I can color it.  So I think I digested enough! LOL  I colored her up with Copic markers and shaded with a black Spectrum Noir pencil.  Then fussy cut and used foam dots to raise the image.  Stardust used and liquid pearls here and there.   Shaded the paper frame with chalk.  Used a Martha Stewart border edge.  Some little paper butterflies here and there.  Glossy accent on her eyes and a piece of sparkle tulle behind the image to soften it up.  Thanks for stopping by and till next time, enjoy your weekend!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
