CARD: Hollyhocks

Hi All!

In case anyone purchases from the STORE and has any difficulties downloading - Fred will be away Saturday and Sunday ( Sept 10-11 ) and will be without internet access.  If you have any questions or problems, please email me and I will help you first thing Monday ;)  We are heading to Toronto to go to the Zoo and see the sights ... just realized the Toronto International Film Festival ( The Tiff. ) is going on!  Maybe we will go star chasing... not LOL!

Here is a card I recently made.  I used a print of the WHITE coloured Hollyhocks.  What I did was tint the flowers by going over them with pencils ( this one prismacolor process red and the creamy coloured flowers-  a tiny bit of jasmine - you could do the same thing with copics etc.) and sponging the edges of the oval with antique linen distress ink .  The background is alcohol inked glossy paper that has been embossed.


I have been trying to draw and colour some cute little birds.  Need to make a few more  before they are ready for prime-time ;)   ... maybe some berry branches or florals to go with them.  ... eventually LOL...

Have a great weekend!

:)*  Fred
