This week's theme on Simon Says Stamp and Show is to show lots of color. I'm continuing on my sketching journey and used Faber Castell gelatos and aquarelle colored pencils, as well as watercolor crayons, to color in my creations this week.
So far, I've been showing just the "naked" sketches, without any extras. But as promised, this week I wanted to show you how I've taken the sketches and made them into finished art, or "almost" finished art... All the sketches have been trimmed and matted onto black card stock, which reinforces the framing. They can now be put into a frame or mounted as a card front.
As you probably know, I really like the look of hand-stamped sentiments, whether it's a word, or a quote. It gives some meaning to the art work, whatever it is, and these sketches are no different. I wanted the sketches to mean something... so here we go...
I found lots of quotes related to flowers or nature on-line. Mostly I just chose the ones that would fit on each sketch, depending on how much space was available. Not a lot more to say on these... so I'll just share the photos - Hope you enjoy!
Thanks for coming along on my sketching journey - later this week I'll share some more sketches that were done backwards to these... watercolor paints first, then pen work. Love the way they came out - stop by later to check them out.
If you have a chance to join in this week's challenge, you'll have a chance at winning a $50 shopping spree to Simon Says Stamp! Hope you can break out all your colorful supplies and play along!
Have a great week!
