I've been busy today!

I have been busy today!  After getting back from my cooking class at William Sonoma I got to work on finishing up my Apple Recipe cards shown in my previous post.  You have to try the recipe-YUM!  I then went to work on inking up another Magnolia Tilda-this one holding purple hydrengea flowers.  I took some step by step photos in order to welcome you into my art world.  I haven't decided yet what to do with this image-a card maybe? never know with me!  I am tired so I quit before I could make that decision but will post my finished project when it is done.  So sit back and enjoy my day with me!  Elle
First I colored my flowers with a base color. 
I then used Crystal Effects to add some Fuschia Flower Soft.  I have had it for awhile but always forget to pull out this product-something I am trying to correct.  The yellow you see is a reflection of the table I am working on-sorry for my lacking photography skills!
Here is just the beginnings of my coloring process.  I added another layer of flower soft.

Finally my finished image all colored, glittered and ready to go!  I hope you enjoyed my little journey!  Off to bed.  Elle
