SFYTT-Aug & PC19 - Thanks

I was feeling the need to color up a Memory Box image - so I grabbed my "Adore" stamp.

I colored up the image with my prisma pencils and popped up the flowers.  I colored the background with Distress Inks and added some water splotches.  I really didn't want to have the "Adore" on it - so I slit the image and ran ribbon through the front to cover it up.  Using the Sketch For You To Try August layout - I put the card together AND I was so excited to see that my card actually worked great with the {Pin}spirational Challenge#19.

Here's a close up:

Here are the two challenge:

Hope you have a terrific Friday!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Your cards are always so lovely with the prisma pencils, maybe I need to try them for other than shading over copics. Gorgeous card Maria! Have a great weekend!

This is so elegant with the distressed ink and water splotches. The flowers are colored up so pretty with the shading. Hope you have a great weekend.

Beeeeautiful, Maria, awesome colouring, wish I could learn how to color from you...
It is the end of Friday here in Indonesia, like 840 pm and I have to say that I had a great day - a friend took me and 4 others for lunch and then my younger one had a playmate with almost all her class mates. They came over to our complex to enjoy the play ground. It was lovely to see the kids so happy bonding with each other... it was so quiet when everyone left.

Happy to be blogging again,

Beautiful card, Maria! What a gorgeous floral image! I love your coloring and love the dimension you gave the flower heads. Very clever way to cover up the Adore part of the stamp. Really love how you did the sentiment on the side with the pearl cluster, too!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
