Penciled Pansies



Good morning and welcome to the weekend. hee hee  If you get a chance check out the new Power and Spark challenge this month with our host Ally. The challenge is Fabric inspired. How fun is that , with all the beautiful fabrics out there it will be hard to pick. I will be playing later this month hopefully. Be sure to check out the PP blog for details.  


This creation is using Pansies. Using two of my new purple shades of Prisma colored pencils and a light blue color. The green shades I already had and then a hint of brown for the centers and some vanilla. I do like how this turned out. 
Die cut the flowers and made sure that the petals that over extended the die were popped out from the panel. A decorative die for the background and some light blue paper. Tied off a ribbon bow with some silver cord and jewels to finish it off. Voila!

These are gorgeous! And your coloring is amazing! I am just now starting to use my pencils. Thanks for the inspiration and now I have to add Pansies to my growing Power Poppy images.

This is lovely, Stacey!! I love the use of dies to frame and your pretty pansies colored in pencils. I will have to get mine out again!

Wow, Stacy, your pencil coloring is gorgeous! Look at the shades of blue/almost lavender! It's stunning, and I love the out-of-the-box technique for the pansies and leaves, and what a perfect decorative die with the blue background. Stunning with your sweet bow and silver cord (I need to remember the silver cord in some of my cards...love it!), and I love the jewels to finish it off. Truly a GORGEOUS card, sweet friend!! Hugs and love! xoxo
