Flower Soft Sprinkle Challenge: Heavy Metal

This week's Flower Soft Sprinkle challenge over at SCS (FSC08) is to use Flower Soft on your project with the theme, "Heavy Metal". We'd love to have you join us, wherever that theme takes your imagination......

I was hoping to have my Gold and Silver Flower Soft to play with by now, but it is still somewhere between there and here... so I had to let my imagination flow. Sleep deprivation is not my friend, and some other life factors have me thinking with very little clarity this week... so the best I have come up with so far is a card with a heavy, metal object on it.

It's a wheel barrow.

Don't even ask me how I came up with this card or color scheme when the challenge theme immediately had 'Born to Be Wild' blaring in my head. NOT that I'm unhappy with the card... but it's going to look a bit funny, I think, with the other entries.

Just. Saying.


The heavy metal wheelbarrow is watercolored using Derwent pencils and a water brush. I used a Coluzzle tag template to cut out the oval. I used a mixture of Flower Soft colors again - starting with Ultrafine Sage, then layering Baby Pink, Autumn Mix (just a touch), and Russet Red.

Oh! BTW, the image is Flower Wheelbarrow, from Impression Obsession. In case you want to make a heavy metal card too. HA!

Thanks for your comments on the colored pencil posts - I'll compile questions and answer them over the weekend. Cheers!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
