Slowly working my way back into life now. 😉 I’m here today with a card for the Wplus9 Birthday Week 2 challenge, which is to ‘Step It Up’ by adding dimension.
Here is how I add dimension, I guess:
I colored a lovely image from Very Vintage Greetings with my Prismacolor pencils, trying to shade a little for some dimension there. I also sponged the oval mat behind it, layering both of those with foam tape over the ornate oval for more depth. I cut the banner twice, cutting off the ends on the top one, layering it over the other with foam tape. I suppose the pearls give a little dimension, as well.
So there you have it. Thanks for stopping by today. 😉

On our previously-mentioned vacation, I specifically took some images stamped onto kraft cardstock in order to practice coloring with my Prismacolor pencils. I had seen some of these around blogland and loved the look of the colors on kraft.
Here are two cards created with two different images I completed:
This lovely image is from the Standing Tall stamp set by Annabelle Stamps, and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s Boutique Borders – Birthday set. I tried to fit this card into the Retro Sketches #82 design, hope you can see it there. I think I’ll submit it to this week’s Seize the Birthday, also.
The image on this card is from the Wildflowers stamp set by The Craft’s Meow, and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s Think Big series. And I think I’ll throw this one into the ColourQ #208 challenge as well.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you all have a great weekend!
