This image is from Penny Black and it's called The Artist and I think it's just so endearing. This is how I see my almost 18 year old granddaughter Vanessa, she is so talented with her water coloring and acrylics, she has a board on Pinterest where she keeps all of the paintings she has done. I'm going to be a total GRANDMA here and share with you her amazing art, you can check it out HERE if you'd like. I'm so very proud of all of my 5 amazing grandchildren, each one is unique, loving, smart, funny and talented.
Ok, I'm done bragging.....
Anyway, this image was stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink onto Canson water color paper and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter, I did a bit of shadowing and highlights with my Prismacolor pencils.
The little piece of pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley, the ribbon from my stash. I have a few Candy Dots left so I put 3 in the corner matching some of the colors on this image.
The little charm says "believe", I wish there was a better picture but I just couldn't get close enough and take it, it kept getting blurry.
The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Old Fashioned Florals", I just stamped it and fussy cut it.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment inside is from the set called "Orchids", the little Humming Bird is from the set called "Humming Along" and the little Hydrangea cluster is from the set called "Hydrangea", all 3 are from Flourishes and are sadly retired.
Here is a picture of the sketch that inspired my card.
And the logo from Cardz 4 Galz.
Here are the pictures of the retired sets I used to create my card. I want you to see how they look like.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
