Painting Mushrooms

If you’re looking for my Power Poppy post, just scroll down :)


Hello again sweet people!  I’m back today with an adorable little image from A Day for Daisies that has a wee bit of whimsy in it.  This one is part of a new Club Kit being introduced this week and it’s called called Painted Mushroom Top.  

I decided to pull out my prismacolour pencils for colouring this one.  Just straight pencil work, no OMS.  Then I carried the theme of the dots from the mushroom and little lady bug fairy into the whole card, which works perfectly for our polka-dotted challenge still going on!  



I sponged in the dots on the green panel with a Tim Holtz Stencil (Bubble) and ink, and then cut out some 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch circles from paper to add them to the design.  This is the sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge this week.  

To finish it off I just slipped a little seambinding through some slits I punched into the paper and tied it in a simple knot.  The sentiment is from a PaperTrey Ink set called Big Birthday Wishes.  

Now I know you’ll love more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, so head on over!

How sweet! Love your color choices! I can't believe all the shading you achieved with using the ODM with your pencils. Fab! It's always exciting to see what you do, Christine!
