More Texas Bluebonnets

The bluebonnets may have finished blooming in Texas, but they never stop in my stamp room! The Texana Designs bluebonnets bloom year-round! :-)

I had this Jam'n Bluebonnet image stamped, trimmed & distressed with Vintage Photo ink, sitting on my desk, for a while now. It was about time I do something with it! I got out my Inktense pencils - they are so much fun! I colored the bluebonnet with Sea Blue and Teal Green, then blended it all together with a water brush. Love the colors so much! I went back and added another shade of blue with my Prismas, and a touch of gray as well. The corners were decorated with a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. What a great idea to combine Inktense and Prismacolor pencils to make this terrific card.

  2. Love this Libby - the light tones background behind the dark panel is very effective. Love the texture you have going there too.

  3. Gorgeous! I love the vibrant blue color

  4. Beautiful! I love the look of the vintage photo distress stickles on the edge, too!
