I had this imaged stamped for some time, waiting for some attention. One night I was watching TV and the closet thing I could reach was a regular ole pencil, so I started shading in the image. I still needed some color, so over the graphite I use colored pencils to just shade in some color. I had trimmed it out, mounted it on the muted blue-gray and onto the lighter gray. Then it sat for a week. Hmmmmm?
I finally mounted it onto a very dark blue, looks black in the scan, but it is blue, then onto a gray card and did the doodling to the right with a graphite pencil then over the top with a green colored pencil. Stamped the sentiment on the same gray then mounted it onto the same dark blue. The flower is from My Heart Stamps for You and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. This scan kinda washed it out a bit.
