Love You Tulips

One more card for Operation Write Home.

This card is probably fairly self-explanatory. The tulips were colored with colored pencils and blended with a Dove marker. The sketchy look is kind of an interesting change from the usual well-blended coloring achieved with Copics--a bit more "painterly".

I did highlight the tulips with a bit of Sakura Stardust pen in clear to add just a bit of sparkle. I just can't help myself, LOL. 

Not much time today for more explanation, got to get these in the mail to OWH and then head over to Mom's. But if you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll try to get back to you soon.

  1. Wow! You should do this for a living, it looks so professional. I really like the sketchiness and the bright colors against the background, and how the flowers are outside the short, love it! Who makes that embossing folder? My dots are small, and I think I need big ones!

  2. Your shading is gorgeous on this card, Kathy. I like how you have the tulips extending beyond the borders, too- I think it makes it visually interesting.

    Caring for a loved one is such a beautiful gift. I understand the demands on your time. Take care of yourself. :)

  3. Your coloring is nothing short of marvelous.
