A sneak peak….

This card features a  sneak peak of one of the new ribbon that will be added to the store soon and a new color of the Glimmer paper line.  While I was not well for the last month my ex brother in law passed away so I really needed to make a sympathy card for his wife.   I took the weekend off and finally got my hands inky again.  It had been way way too long since I designed anything.  It felt so good.  Here is the card I designed.

The amazing Lady Slipper images are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela new digital collection. I have several passions including orchids so I was very eager to color this image. Lady Slippers come in every color imaginable and I really wanted mine to look like Lady Slipper orchids so I spent quite some time looking at pictures online b4 I decided to pick relatively close colors to this unusual orchid.  I am still not good at shading and figuring out where the light source should be so it still looks pretty flat but am working on it.  Just signed up for another one of Suzanne Deans Copic coloring classes so maybe someday I will color 1/2 as good as some of the amazing copic artist out there like Suzanne (in my dreams)!  Even though I still really enjoyed coloring this Lady Slipper and am sure this digital image will become a favorite of mine.  I decided to put the sentiment on the inside since there didn’t end up being anymore room on the front.  Here is the inside,

The front of the card is the new Dark Chocolate Glimmer (not even added to the store yet) and a new ribbon that also isn’t available at the store yet but hopefully within the next couple of weeks :)  I colored the Lady Slippers on the extremely popular Cryogen White and the mat is the Spring Larch Glimmer.  The sentiment was printed on Spring Larch Glimmer text weight and then embossed with one of the new Cuttlebug folders.  The 2nd layer is the Cryogen White again that I turned into a cloud like background with Pan Pastels.   The largest mat is Turquoise Vellum. I also used a sheet from Die Cuts with a View on the front cover!
