One of the best things about this here whole blogging thing is the chance to meet friends. People that you've never seen face to face and probably will never get the chance to, but yet, these people that you can call friends. Erin is one of those friends for me. She's an overall good gal. She's got two handsome little boys, makes great cards, always leaves supportive comments...Plus, Erin has given me so many opportunities to design products for her family's inn, The Outside Inn, which I'm grateful for. Erin and I decided to both showcase a card we've made using Hero Art's Hello Circles and the CPS Sketch.
My design also uses the beautiful palette from the current colorQ challenge. I started by embossing one of the large circles from the set in white and then colored them in with colored pencils, so as some of the white resisted and other parts took on the color. Hero Art's Featured Technique this month is Colored Pencils, glad I had the opportunity to pull my bix box of Prismacolors out again.
Have you gone over yet to see Erin's card today and peruse through her blog, Homeade Cards by Erin? Time well spent, my friends, time well spent...
