This card was done for a virtual swap hosted at Stamp-Shack. The image was supplied by inkinupstamps. From the first time I saw this image, it called out for a trellis. I drew one and colored the trellis, the image and the sky around it in watercolors. When finished, the lines of the stamp looked faded from the watercoloring, so I retraced the lines in india ink. I attached the colored image as is to the brown/green card, but, I didn't like so much white around the card. It didn't quite look right to me. So I very carefully (and I mean carefully) peeled it off and cut the white off. Then I debated quite a bit on what color cardstock to use for the background. I can color an image so I'm quite satisfied, but agonize over what cardstock to use as a background. Once I'd sorted out the background, I redrew the tendrils I had cut off and added a few more. The ribbon seems to finish it off for me. Which of the two cards do you prefer?
