Hey there,

When Jeremiah Ketner's amazing Asian art calls to me from my digi collection,  I always answer, because I know how delightful it is to color his gorgeous detailed beauties. I've had THIS beautiful coloring page collection from his Etsy store in my digi file for a while.  Because Jeremiah's water color art is such a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors,  I like to use vivid hues and a painterly style when I  color his  images with my copics.

My friend recently picked out several pieces of foil card stock in multiple colors for me at a store near where she lives and I was thrilled to find just right color for my frame. I love how gorgeous and reflective this card stock is when embossed! I edged both my image panel and my foil panel with a silver leafing pen before I  mounted them to my card base. The image panel is attached with mounting tape for dimension.  I used a white gel pen and some faceted black gems to embellish my butterflies and flowers. 

I've been trying to remember to add sentiments to my cards because I think they are an important finishing touch.  But I never remember to leave enough space for them so I end up tucking them somewhere. I found a subtle place for this one. Subtle is good. 

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and use all the colors.

  2. Another masterpiece, Nancy! Your coloring is just so amazing. I love that mirror cardstock in that hot pink color, how gorgeous!
    I understand the issues with sentiments. That is why I am always on the lookout for sentiment dies as they always work somewhere on a card.
