CDAC Progressive Challenge Round #12, Project 1 - Version 2

This card is a cleaner, simpler version of the project that I posted earlier. The image was provided by Fred She Said Digital Designs. She has an online store, her blog, and a challenge blog as well. The theme for this round is Green, Great, and Gorgeous. I wanted this card to be simpler so that it could be used for guys as well as girls and for a lot of different reasons. I think it would make a great little boys' birthday card as well as a great Just for You card...

The background paper is from one of my PC Hugware collections. I colored the image with my watercolor pencils.

CDAC Progressive Challenge Round #12, Project 1

Here I am once again posting my CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge projects on the last day of the round and trying to beat the deadline. Why does life keep getting in the way of my artwork? Anyhow... the theme for this round is Green, Great, and Gorgeous! The first image that I chose to work with was provided by Fred She Said Designs. Not only is there a great online store, but you will also find links to her blog. I really like her artwork.

For this project I used digital paper for the background from my PC Hugware collection. I used watercolor pencils to color the image. The sentiment was from one of my PC Hugware collections also. The green jewels were from my stash. This card is actually quite a bit larger than the cards that I usually make. I have two versions of this card and they are each 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".

CDAC Progressive Challenge Round #11, Project 1

We had really great digital images to work with this round. Our theme was Love Will Find A Way. I had quite a few of the images colored, but I only got one card finished and posted before the deadline this round.
Here it is - I hope that you like it!

Sorry For My Absence

Sorry that I have been missing for awhile, but I have been in and out of the hospital a couple of times over the last few months (since before Christmas) and I am still dealing with the health issues that put me there. I am hoping to get some cards posted for the challenges that are currently going on as well as some cards that I created but didn't get to post before the challenges ended. Thank you for your concern over my disappearance.

This is one of the cards that I made  for cdacpc Round 8 that I didn't get posted in time. I am really happy with the way that it turned out.
