Beautiful Day *Heartfelt Creations*

I gotta say: I never get tired of Heartfelt Creations stamps. They are just. so. beautiful. I used an assortment of Riddersholm, The Paper Studio, and Prima papers for this card.

This image is from the Broken Cinder Blocks set. I treated the brick wall like a timeless, shabby chic garden wall. I initially thought the bricks would be white but I ended up going with a cream color, like the paint is wearing away. At least, I tried.

These days, I like to color my image to match the papers. I lay the image on top of one of the papers and color away.

These are the Prismacolor pencils I used.

A Tattered Blossoms flower. I stamps the flowers on one of the pink papers from the Riddersholm collection. The center is textured with glitter.
