Wings

Hi All!
Well I'm back and lo and behold I am using white paper!! I know, shock of shocks and horror of horrors!
Well its good to shake things up a bit and I thought that this image lent itself to brightness which sometimes only white can achieve. Anyway, I survived it. lol
I'm quite into making these "quilted scenes" right now. I just free-cut my hills and sewed them down. Nothing complicated. But I do like the effect. :)

Recipe:
Colors: Prismacolors and Lyra
Paper: Jillibean Soup "Apple Cheddar", Crate Paper "Farmhouse, and Coordinations Cardstock "Autumn".
Bakers Twine: Lemondrop


Well thats it from little ol me today, I'll see you around Blogland!

...and I just love the effect of your quilted backgrounds too. Love the button sun as well. Beautifully coloured again, of course.

You rock no matter what paper or what you are coloring with! I have seen you rock crayolas! Nobody does clouds like you either! Very sweet image! The rolling hills are fantastic! That paper is perfect for the scenes!

Alex said...

Loving the quilted look, too... wish I could use my sewing machine better (no idea why but never get tension right on paper) to try this!
Love the image as well and need to try and use it again son! Stunning card!
love, Alex

Hey kiddo...I was thinking you'd run out of white paper altogether...hehe! It's fun to do something different occasionally...but don't expect to see me coloring on Kraft paper...hehehe! It's too stressful for me! But I so LOVE it when you do...aww, who am I kidding? I love your coloring on anything! I just love your coloring! And the stitching and quilt-looking hills are my faves! Oh...and these images...you always make them come alive!! Hugs. Pat Frank
