Pink & Coral Healing Thoughts


I'm still here!

I stamped a background stamp and heat embossed it in Silver Pearl. The frosted vellum circle on top is stamped with a flower bouquet,. LOL I thought these were dahlias until OOPS I looked again and saw daffodils! So just think of this as creative license and I made up some coral pink flowers of an unknown variety. I then colored the image on the backside of the vellum. Taking a rounded stylus, I gently pushed the flowers and leaves forward for some dimension. I used some white drops, some crystal glitter drops discreetly and then added the twine bow. The colors are corals and pinks with white.

PS I highly recommend taking the Color Pencil online class that Sandy Allnock teaches. You will go from beginning to moderate-moderate/advanced in her class (your level will depend on the hours, practice, homework and continued practice you put into her classes). There are hours of videos, samples, downloads, color charts (including her color pencil hex chart based on the Copic marker hex chart she developed). You will be amazed at all the techniques she will show you and the different materials you can color on. Here is the link to her class (I don't get anything for recommending her to you, but I am one of the moderators in her Facebook students group page). You can always join her FB group if you take one of her classes. Here you go: Color Pencil Jump Start online class

It took a bunch of tries to get a photo. I couldn't get the lighting, colors or hues correct. I'm sorry I let the twine cover up the sentiment, grrrr. It says "Sending healing thoughts."

Thank you so much for visiting ♥
