This is the inside of the card. I had to cut Gold labels 4 down to get it to fit but I think it is ok. Left open for a sentiment or a stamped message.

I did something a little different this time, I used some prisma colored pencils after I color Rebecca with my copic markers. I wanted to see if that made any difference. The first one you can see I did not finish the sky but that is the one only colored with the copics. The second one is colored with both copics and pencils. I found that it was very easy to add the pencils and I found it more controlling in the tiny places to add more color. What do you think? I think it turned out really nice. You be honest.

If I'd only seen the image colored with Copics I'd say it looked beautiful. But I do like the effect of the pencils - all the blue really completes the image and it wotks so well with the colors of your papers too! This is something I'll definetely try out myself - thanks for the inspiration! Your card looks fantastic!

Patrica, First let me say a thank you for your help over at The Outlawz.
Secondly I so aspire to colour like you, this card is a real work of art.
By the way I like the little girl coloured with both copics and pencils.

Gorgeous card and love all of the different elements you've used. Your coloring looks fab and I love the colored pencils. I agree that is so much easier to get that final shading into those smaller areas with better control.


Viv said...

Oh my! Patricia! This is so beautifully coloured. I thought it was outstanding when I saw the first image, but WOW! Did it pop with the use of the pencils!! Thanks for showing the difference. I didn't believe anyone that they made a difference 'till saw this. Your card is just PRECIOUS! xxx

WOW! This is the most realistic looking image I've seen. The girl without the added pencil looks amazing, but the girl with the pencils is outstanding!

I can't say it any better than anyone before me responded Patricia - the 2nd image is awesome! The first image also rocks! I cannot seem to learn to color hair like you? Any suggestions?

Wowzers, Pat! This is so stunning, it takes my breath away! Really! Your design & die cuts are fabulous, the DP and color palette are beautiful, and you did a fantastic job of coloring your gorgeous image! I think the addition of the pencils was a terrific idea, and you carried that out so well--it really added definition! I would never know how to add pencil to my Copics. Way to go, GF! :^)
Hugs, Penny

Holy Cannoli Pat...I mean to tell you...that pencil added some incredible depth to this image. I can definitely see a big difference between the two. Like everyone else, the copic alone is wonderful,but WOW...that difference is something else. Gorgeous card!!!!!!
Hugs to you,
