Welcome Back Everyone

My last post showed a class sample from my Techniques class that I taught last Saturday. The technique was Coloring using Colored Pencils and Gamsol.. I just have to share another sample from that class.

Here is a close up of the image.

This stamp is from Stacy Stamps and as a lover of poppies I absolutely love this image.In coloring this, I chose to use more of the oranges instead of the vibrant reds that you typically see for poppies. I used 4 or 5 different colors in the blossom.  I also added some of the orange/red color to the bud to try to make it more lifelike. Hope you have enjoyed this card.

I have another class this Saturday and we will be making masculine cards. Seems that we all have a hard time with that theme. I will share those cards with you next week. I think you will like them.

Thanks for stopping in today. 

                                    Hope you have a wonderful day

                                                                                I will be back soon. 

I am submitting this in the following challenges:
