Soft Flowers

Aloha, dear friends,

Have you ever used color pencils on vellum? Try it. You get such a gentle look.

I stamped the image in a soft neutral, then colored it with really inexpensive Crayola pencils :D    I used some white pigment ink all over the back of it, as well as over the embossed layer behind it - this pops the layer and the background a bit. Inside the card is the elegant sympathy sentiment from  Thinking of You by Flourishes.

I learned more intricate ways to apply color pencils to various mediums in the Color Pencil Jump Start Class taught by Sandy Allnock.
