I actually found time to spend in the studio to finish an earlier start on a card. I wanted to take what I learned from Lisa Lee's class using Yasutomo's Splash Inks on an Art Board from Inchie Arts.

While I was 'on a roll', I also made this card for someone going through a challenging time. For this card, I stamped directly onto designer paper and colored the stamped image with colored pencils -- one of my favorite to-do's that I learned long ago from a class taught by Helene Metivier, Magenta. I love how you pick up subtle color nuances from the designer paper. In this instance, I also went around the background and colored in with the light aqua color.
