Said So with Audrey
My 11 yo DD picked out all the colors/supplies/embellishments for this card according to the Club Anya "Because I Said So" challenge.
As soon as I told DD about this she wanted to do this card NOW! She picked out several things she thought were pretty and when I arranged them on the table she said "Ewww, those don't look so good together". I told her I had an idea that I thought would work. She said "Good luck with that" and she walked out! Ha!
I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils and did NOT use any kind of goo gone/baby oil/mineral spirits kind of blender. I simply used the pencils to move the wax around. I'm still kinda perfecting this so I will keep practicing and share this with you soon. I have a hard time reading the colors on the pencils in my dimly lit basement. DD made labels for me and that is REALLY helping! Lisa C had asked that I post what color pencils I used so here ya go:
The sky and grass are just DP. The sun was cut with my Cricut, sentiment stamped in the middle, and then sponged with a very dry sponge of Rose Red (closest I had to Melon Mambo). Audrey was colored with Prismas and her shirt and hat were paper pieced in (they receieved a little chocolate Prismacolor shadows). The flowers were sponged with inks and had a eyelet inserted. I drew in a wavy line stem with my Prismas and some circle "leaves" to match the DP.
