Heaven Scent

At Craft Your Passion this week were looking for your cards/projects using kraft paper with lace/ribbon.We have the fabulous Simon Says Stamp and A Day For Daisies as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the divine  Scent Of A Vintage Rose.As this is such a gorgeous image I thought I’d try and make an effort with my colouring.I’ve used Polychromos Pencils and took inspiration from this tutorial at Dorcas Designs as a guide.I took a fair time to add all the details as I wanted them but I have to say I’m quite pleased with the result 🙂 Mind you I think I need so much more practice to match the talents of this lady!I think I need to more adventurous on which colours to use for shading.I’m a bit of a colour coordination freak!

Here’s a closer look :

Have to admit I was worried about making a card to go with this once it was coloured up. I hope I’ve managed to make a card worthy of it!
