I printed the digital image of "Southwest" onto a piece of Hewlett Packard Color Inkjet paper (24 Pound, Uncoated, 96-Plus Brightness). I colored and colored and colored to my heart's content with Prismacolor pencils. Once finished, I sprayed the image with workable fixative.
I framed the picture with black cardstock, and formed panels with a rust cardstock which was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and a piece of patterned paper from Darcie. I sponged Adirondack Butterscotch and Adirondack Rust onto the paper and paper pierced and faux stitched with a colored pencil.
Some hemp and a circle clip put the finishing touches on this card.
This fits today's WT404...as I love to color with Prismacolor pencils and I am also very fond of southwestern images. I was a happy camper making this card.

This is just gorgeous-it stands out in the gallery. I LOVE the southwest, it is my most favorite place I have ever vacationed-your image/coloring is such a perfect picture of the area-I feel like I am looking at a photograph of Utah.
