Secret Garden...

See? I told you all, I'd have more of this flower to show you. :) Here is another version of the Hollyhock Digi from McMahon 5 Designs. This time I used my prisma pencils in shades of pinks and then my pearlescent chalks over the entire image using an antique tan color. It really made the image take on a vintage look and looks totally different from the one I did in my previous post. :) I've also just recently purchased a selection of Tim Holtz die-cuts that are also available over at McMahon 5 Designs. (She's got several really cool sets!) I used a couple of the die cuts from the Hardware Findings set here.
I hope everyone has a fun Father's Day weekend. I'm heading up to Colorado to see my dad, along with all of my siblings (and our families) for a family reunion of sorts. Dad hasn't had all four of us kids together in one room since I was a teen. :) Should be fun!!!

Michelle-This is so stylish and charming. That image is so attractive and I can see so many ways to use it. I have been eying those Tim Holtz die cuts. Anyone that loves Vintage....needs those, right!!! This is so impressive. Have fun with your family for Father's Day. Have a safe trip and enjoy each others company. Great job with the sketch this week. Thank you so much for playing along with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!
