Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a card to share that I made for my sweet sister to accompany a gift. I combined a sentiment from the PTI What the Doodled Butterfly set and made a coordinated die cut butterfly:
I think the butterfly is quite elegant don't you?
This card is accompanying the painting shown below. It's week 4 already of a 5 week painting e-course that I am currently taking presented by one of my favorite impressionistic floral artists, Nancy Medina. This week, we are learning how to paint brilliant pansies and geraniums. Pansies are my sisters favorite flowers! Since time of the essence with my sister, I'm going to send her the first attempt!
Although pansies are rather small, they sure require a lot of patience as they are rather detailed!
I also tried not to over work the geraniums and blend them to oblivion as Nancy would say!
For card color inspiration, I'm joining along with the current ColourQ colour challenge:
and for card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Retro Sketches sketch challenge:
I'm linking the painting up with the Paint Party Friday link up:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
