The image is a free digi from Paper Garden Projects. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils, odorless mineral spirits, and paper blending stumps. I've been collecting a few digital stamp images recently, meaning to try the Gamsol Magic coloring technique with them (I've been a bit worried about the odorless mineral spirits making the inkjet printer ink run and bleed), so this was my big experiment. And I was pleasantly surprised by how well it all turned out!
These are the challenges I incorporated into the making of this card:
- Embellish Vintage Color Challenge: to make a vintage project using the colors green, yellow, and rust
