The East Wind have a new free image, 'mum', this month for those who subscribe to their newsletter. I decided to try colouring it using pencils instead of using my usual Promarkers. The balloons are coloured using Dewent coloursoft pencils and blended with a clear pencil to create a translucent effect. In other areas colours were blended using a lighter colour pencil. The flowers and eyes were coloured using Dewent inktense pencils to give a brighter colour. I cut the image out using a Spellbinders labels eight die and while still in the die dusted the edges with distress ink. I then matted it onto pink centura pearl card which had been cut out using a decorative labels eight die. It was then attached to pink core'dinations cardstock which had been matted and layered onto silver mirri card and white card.
I finished the card with three flowers and a bow.
