Some days it shines...

Hey friends!

It's a new month and that means it's time for a new Year of Flowers card on this Scenic Saturday over at the Bellarific blog. Water Lily is the official flower for July so I inked up Tiny Townie Garden Girl Water Lily. Because I wanted her to be wading through the shallow waters of her lily pond I first stamped her leg in Memento desert sand using my Misti, then inked every thing but her foot and ankle in Memento tuxedo black before stamping her again. The lighter ink combined with only using the lighter Copics in my skin and shoe combos helps create the illusion of her foot being below the water's surface once I color over it with some light blue Copic markers. For the background I sketched in extra lily pads floating on the water, making sure to sketch them in smaller the further in the distance I wanted them to be. Beyond the water's edge I colored in some blue sky and the far shore of the lily pond, complete with a variety of simple trees and bushes. Once all the coloring was complete I stamped on the sentiment then used a white pen to add ripples and some extra dimension to the water as a finishing touch. :)

Thanks for stopping by and a safe and happy 4th to all those celebrating this weekend!
