Sitting Pretty - CC152

Here's another Spring Flowers - Sitting Pretty card for Firecracker Designs by Pamela. This one uses Color Challenge #152 from Splitcoast Stampers (CC152).

This is a 5.5" x 5.5" square card to accomodate the size of the main image. I colored the main image with my Prismacolor alcohol markers and colorless blender pen. I included a close up of the flower to better show the shading and highlights. It takes a lot of practice, but I think (I hope!) I am getting better at using these markers. I love using them, they give such depth of color and the ink goes on so smoothly without pilling the paper like water-based inks can.

Do you like those red beads? I got them in the

Christmas section of Hobby Lobby when they were like 80% off after the holidays. It's a 1 yard continuous string - I just cut off what I needed. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them when I saw them, but I knew I had to have them!!! There's a reason we stampers have so much stuff in our "stash".
