Altenew Leaf Canopy Set and Blog Hop Winner

Hey everyone!  I had grand plans, but didn't end up getting to create a card with the Leaf Canopy set for Altenew's June blog hop, so over the weekend, I made a point of getting it out.  

I love the versatility of this set!  I kept things simple here (I feel like I say that a lot these days), stamping aFrayed Leaf ink.background using both of the solid images and

Then I went in with three shades of green Prismacolor pencils and added shading to the leaves.  

I'm no expert at colored pencils and don't tend to use them on their own a ton, but I love being able to add detail and shading of stamped/colored images with them.  

The sentiment is from the Moroccan Mosaic stamp set and was just popped up with a small mat.

I also have a winner to announce from last week's release hop.

Congratulations to Nox!  Please email by 6/30/2018 with the subject line Altenew June 2018 Release Blog Hop Winner from Miriam's Blog to claim your prize.
