Hi Friends! I created this project for Flutter by Wednesday Challenge. I'm the guest designer this week at Flutter by Wednesday. Whoohoo! Thanks Danni. . .I'm honored to be your guest designer this week.
The challenge this week is to create a card or project with a flower and butterfly image. I had colored the huge SU "From the Garden" image but after I colored it, I realized it was too large to fit on to a standard sized card so I had to improvise a bit. Instead of making a card, I decided to create a "Gift Bag Topper".
Besides, I'm trying to create pdf files for all my old tutorials so this was a great opportunity to convert this tutorial. I, initially, created it for my Stampin Up blog site but now that I no longer post on that blog, this will be a good time to transfer it to this blog site.
Hey. . .I watercolored the image with my "Twinkling H2O" which I haven't done in such a long time. Yay! No Copic Marker coloring this time around! I've been wondering when I'll use a different color medium. I'm so accustomed to pulling out my Copic Markers that I'm sort of neglecting my other coloring mediums.
In person, the shading and highlights show up better. . .I love my camera but sometimes it seems my coloring on my photos appear flat. I think it has to do with my lighting. The only time it really shows the shading and highlights are with close up shots.
Anyway. . .I really had fun creating this gift bag topper.
