All Who Wander...

Hi All!  I've got a quick little card to share with you today.  It's featuring a new Saturated Canary image (I know you're all shocked, lol) called Pack Light.  As soon as I saw her on Krista's blog I knew I just had to have her, and even though I was in the middle of coloring another image I actually stopped just so I could do this one which is something I can honestly say I've never done before!  I found some paper from the Webster's Pages Trendsetter line to pair her with and because the paper itself has so many details I didn't really want to cover much of it up so it's a pretty simple design overall.  The challenge over at the Saturated Canary blog is to Bling It Out and since I'm kinda crazy about bling and pearls it wasn't too hard to incorporate some of that into my design although I kept it a little more understated than I usually do but I think it makes sense with the overall look of the finished card.  My sentiment is just hand written and split between the front and the inside of the card.  It's a favorite quote of mine because my sister is quite the world traveler (she'd been to 25 countries before she turned 25)- and every time I see it I think of her- "All who wander are not lost."  Well, thanks so much for stopping by- I hope you like my card and that you are all having a wonderful week so far!

Katie-great to have you at Art With No Boundaries. Where to start, everything about your card is just wonderful. You made this image shine. If you lived close I'd take some Copic coloring lessons from you. Look forward to seeing more of your art.

Stunning colouring, great card, and I'd like to say ditto to all of the above, especially the comments about going to your house to watch you colour! I've started using a BV on my colouring (I don't have the same colour you do, but mine's working okay) because of you and can defiantly see the difference. Your work is truly inspiring. Thanks!
