Congratulations and Craftsy Class sale



I've had this Altenew set for at least a year, and I just love the images, but hadn't inked it up until this week.

I was in the mood to color, so I stamped a couple of the clusters and colored with my Copics.  I opted for a more neutral palatte, using Warm Grays for the flowers.  I used a solid very dark warm gray for a few of the flourishes, then thought it was a bit too much of a contrast, so I added some white gel pen dots to break it up a bit.



For the greens, I used Warm Gray 1 as a base, and then added the green.  This kept the color more subdued and in line with the florals

The sentiment was stamped and embossed on a thin strip of cardstock and popped up.

It's been a crazy week here, but thankfully I've been able to squeeze in some creative time which helps keep me sane.

I also wanted to let you know that Craftsy is running a 50% sale on a bunch of classes now through Saturday, including mine.  I've taken a bunch of the paper crafting classes through Craftsy and also signed up for some crochet classes, but they offer lots categories, including knitting, sewing, cooking, drawing and painting.  If you're looking to learn something new, now's a really good time to try.  Here's my affiliate link if you are interested:  http://www.craftsy.com/ext/MiriamPrantner_holiday

That's all for me today, have a great one!
