Valentine's day is coming up next week. We don't really have a tradition for celebrating this day in Norway, at least not in the American fashion. Anyway, I was inspired to make a card for my best friend to make her feel special. She is currently living in the U.S., so I hope she's not already sick of hearts and romance (haha).
This drawing is based on a stamp called Tweetheart from Art Impressions. I wanted this drawing in a different size for a bigger card, so I took a white pencil and drew my own bird based on that image instead.
Colour pencils on kraft paper give a really nice effect. I have the 132 set of Prismacolor pencils so I used lots of different shades of blue. It took quite some time to complete, as colour pencil drawings always do.
In the end I chose a sentiment from a different set. I wanted something subtle, not to steal too much attention from the bird. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and embossed with white powder from Hero Arts.
Stamps: Tweetheart - Art Impressions, Always Cherry Blossoms - The Ton
I have submitted this card to the following challenges:
