I've about had it with the freezing cold temperatures and snow here in Michigan. Now that the Holidays are over, I'm ready for Spring and Summer! With thoughts of warmer weather stuck in my head, I created this card for this week's CPS Sketch, sponsored by DRS Designs. Unfortunately, I don't have my own sketch challenge for you to see, but that will continue again next Wednesday.
I colored the main image and the butterflies with pencils, and shaded the background behind the flowers with blue chalk. Then, I went on a 3D-frenzy and colored the entire image several times in order to mount all 3 flower blooms and all 4 butterlies on foam tape! That turned out to be a bigger job than I thought, but so very worth it for the final outcome!
