Growing in Unity Day Four

Welcome Unity Friends!!!  It's day four of my week as one of the Growing In Unity gals and I am super excited to share my projects with you today!!!

For my cards I used this wonderful floral image from the Warmth of Winter KOTM 12/14:

For both cards I stamped the image onto white cardstock using Memento ink.  I then picked out Prismacolor pencils that I wanted to use and colored each image...the first was colored with reds, maroons, and black.

For the second card I decided, while waiting for my daughter who was at her drawing lesson, to really mix it up and picked a bunch of grey tone colors and went to town.  I really love mixing colored pencil colors to create all kinds of highlights and shadows on an image.

and here is the final image on a card:

So...which do you like best?  I love how a single image can look so many different ways based on how it's colored!!!

I hope you'll leave a comment on this post and my others from this week, as I get to pick a winner of an awesome prize from Unity when my week is up.

Happy crafting....Lynda

These are both colored so nicely. I really like this image and the way you designed these cards.

Love that pretty flower image from the KOTM! Beautiful colors on your cards!

I really like the red flower, but it's neat that you showed two so we will be inspired to try new things, like adding several colors to make it very different. I like to experiment like that, and see what I come up with. Sometimes I like the "different" experiments better than the usual. I love it all!!!

I just looked at the colorful one again, and now I like it better than the red. Funny how that is. I SO love crafting!!!

Oh my.. Those are absolutely gorgeous. I would have never guessed they were pencils. My he colors are so vibrant. I haven't used pencils before, only alcohol markers. Going to have to check into that. Thank you for sharing!

They are both beautiful. The 2nd one looks very similar to a succulent.
