A Rose by any Other Name.......


Quoting Shakespeare on a Monday morning......it must be getting close to the school year! ;)
I have been so busy with life stuff that my crafting time has been sort of pushed aside lately.  But when I don't feel like "creating" per se, I like to at least color.  Then when I'm in the mood at a later time, I'll put together a card. I have been coloring a lot with my Inktense pencils.  I truly love playing and experimenting with these pencils. 
Today's card uses a digital image from Crafty Secrets.  It is part of the Digital Garden Memories set.  I colored it in using shades of red and pink, and yellows and greens for the leaves.  Once the rose was completely dry, I added a bit of black to the shadows.  The beauty of these pencils is you can use them wet like a watercolor, or completely dry like a regular colored pencil.  
All of the papers used here are by Crafty Secrets.  I just layered them, added a doily peeking out from the main image, and lots of satin ribbon to tie it all together. 
This is my last full week off, and I still have lots of loose ends to tie up....like getting brakes and an oil change today.  I always hold my breath when I take my van in.....because you just never know what else they will find! Fingers crossed that it is a painless visit to the Toyota dealer. 
Hope you all have a great day!
Thank you for stopping by!
