I call it a “little” card for a reason. Because I changed design plans so many times I ended up with a card which measures 4 1/4” x 5”, a little shorter than A2. It went from full A2 clean and simple with no borders, to 5 1/2” square with designer paper, and finally to this, which I guess you’d have to say is somewhere in the middle.
I had the notion I wanted to mask the Lavender and put one bucket behind the other, and I do like the way it’s filling up the side of the card, but not so sure it looks the way I intended -- yet another instance of never knowing what’s going to come out of my stamp room, sigh. . . The coloring of this most easy of all stamps to color is somewhat impressionistic due to the loose masking. I adlibbed here and there to fill in some empty spots. I colored with Copic markers on X-Press It Blending Card, which is white, but I filled all that in with E50, gradually shading into the darker E51, E21, and E33. The rest is blue violets, olive, and warm grays. You’re probably guessing by now I forgot to photograph the markers.
