Soft Pencil Tuesday!!!

Welcome to Soft Pencil Day, and a little inspiration with one of the new releases from last week!!!!! We are showing you samples today with the new image called "Watering My Garden"! Elizabeth's images just keep getting more and more cute! Of course, I couldn't resist using purple and yellow, my favorite color combo! I used Prismacolor marker, Light Peach, to color the skin tone, and the rest was colored with some Prismacolor pencils. Then, I know it is hard to see, but I used some purple Stickles to fill in the hair bows and the flower she is watering. I cut and matted the image with my rectangle and scalloped rectangle nestibilities. The DP background paper was cut with my SU/Sizzix Bigx Clear Large Scallop Square di-cut. I ran the di-cut through once, shifted the paper by two scallops, ran it through the Cuttlebug again, thus giving me a rectangle instead of a square. If anyone is confused by that instruction feel free to tell me in comments or via email and I will post a short photo tutorial on it tomorrow. Moving on, I added a little scrap of purple under the one corner, so that the yellows didn't blend together too much, some Prima Flowers with sticky gem centers, a few more sticky gems at the bottom, and it was finished. Sounds complicated, but it was really a pretty fast card to make. Come back for next week's Soft Pencil DT showcase of another new image called "Charming Flowers". Now run your cursor over the DT names in my blog sidebar, click and visit the other DT members to see what cute inspiration they have created for you!!! I am off......Until next time........Blessings, Lisa

Lisa, your card is so pretty! LOVE the colors! How clever you were to figure out how to cut a different shape. I never thought of that :O
