Here is my card for WT129 - Better Sharpen Up You Pencils.
Okay this card gave me big fits! I designed it around this great olive green flourish ribbon that I got from Michael's for a $1. I wanted to use creamy caramel and red with the olive. Went to my papers and only had a few scraps of creamy caramel left! So I decided to use whisper white, stamp my flourishes in old olive, color them with my water color pencils and then sponge creamy caramel over it. Okay, stamped the flourishes, looked at my pencils and there's no olive pencil...ugh!! (I guess that is my biggest complaint about the SU! water color pencils, there is not a color that matches every cs color.) So I decided to make my own olive by blending the mustard and one of the greens. Alright...background is done.
On to the flower. Originally started with two of the doodle this flower, but decided in the end to just use one because it call kind of looked a little too busy for me. Also, I also could not decided where to place the silly thing! I also kept coloring and coloring it with my red pencil because when I originally colored and blended it, it was way too pink. I think I finally got it closer to red.
Anyway, I am sure no one has read all of this, if you have, I am sorry, but all I can say is I am glad I am done with this card!!! :)
