Awareness II

Hi everyone, another card for the set I'm sending off for Breast Cancer Awareness month. The image is by MFT, coloured with water colour pencils and H20s. I've done the card in a simple style which seems to suit the great image which was sent to me by a friend together with the sentiment. I just added the pretty background paper, doodling and edging around the sentiment, pearls and some stickles to finish. The H20 element is for an SCS technique challenge. They do give a nice sheen but there are a few lumpy looking bits here and there. I suppose it depends on the angle of the light in the photograph it doesn't seem to look like this IRL. TFL.

Back soon
Chris

So pretty and fresh Chris! I love your sentiment-- doodles and placement-- as well as your beautifully colored image.

Thanks for the photo tips...I had just purchased a photo tent and system-- have not opened it as of yet. Will try lighting from different angles! I really appreciate your advice! :)

Two lovely cards Chris. I'm amazed out how many lovely cards you manage to produce all the time.
Thanks for your advice about the Prismacolor pencils, I've ordered them now and I'm like a kid at Christmas, I just can't wait for them to arrive!

Chris, I've decided to not comment on your blog anymore...
... because I am so speechless everytime I look at your cards that my comments would all start looking like: "Ohhh - Ahhh - Awwww - AWESOME!".
You'll soon get bored with that so I better shut up ;) :D

Thank you for being here and sharing your gifts with us.

Hugs,
Mada
