Color Pencil One Layer Card

We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. The challenge is on Clean And Simple. This is the type of cards that I struggle a lot with because I am not sure if my card is clean and simple enough. I can't seem to resist adding embellishments to my cards. For this card, I focused on making it simple to keep the focus on the image. Speaking of which, coloring is the other struggle I have for this challenge. Our image sponsor is Createful Heart Digis.  This image is called Story Time. They provided the images to choose from. I chose this image because it reminds me of my sister, who loves to read and loves cats. I was going to create this for her birthday last month but I didn't finish it on time for her special day.

I printed the image on Strathmore Bristol paper. Given this very detailed image, I used Prismacolor pencils to get to those small areas. Well, I did print it in a small scale and I also cropped the image. When I started this project, I am going for a one layer card.

After I colored the image, I added color details on the smaller areas with fine-tip markers that I have on hand. I embossed two metal dies from Simons Says Stamp to border the image and the edge of the card. I outlined the outer border with Versamark ink, then embossed it using a red Ranger embossing powder. I heat embossed the sentiment from Newton's Book Club stamp set using white embossing powder on red cardstock.

I hope you find inspiration with today's card. Please join us in this challenge. I can't wait to see your CAS creations. 

Have a blessed & brilliant day!
