Penciled Lily collage

One more card using Our Daily Bread design's I Am the Way set. I stamped the large lily image on a shipping tag, masked it, and used some Versamagic pads to fill in the background. With the mask still on, I stamped the flowers from Sing to the Lord, and also the Lord's Prayer stamp. I then removed the mask and colored the lily with Prismacolor pencils. There's no paper-piecing or layering on it, though it looks dimensional...my husband was sort of impressed with that. :) The ribbon is not that bright in person...but it was a good find the other day - 25 yards for about $2! Good thing I like orange, huh... I didn't actually tie a bow there - I should have taken a picture of it before I put it together. The 'bow' part is held in place by a loop of ribbon through the hole of the tag.

I'm still fighting this virus - probably not helping anything by refusing to be sick...but other than a scratchy voice, Elliot is fine fine fine. No Dengue. Thankful for that today!

  11. I've noticed that the older I get, the more often I like colors that I used to avoid. This is a perfect example! The pink - orange color scheme would've made me run away a few years ago... now it makes me stop and stare (and maybe drool a little!). Beautiful, gorgeous, amazing! :)
