On the Menu

Over at Double D challenge blog the challenge was to use something on the menu.  I went searching through my coloring calendar and found these strawberries to color up.  They are even better dipped in dark chocolate but I didn't color them up that way for this, I was in the need of thank you notes and I was thinking I had a thank you berry much but after coloring this I just couldn't find it.


First I started off by stenciling the background very lightly with ink, I mixed a little water with a blue sparkle pen and took a paint brush and tapped the end to make spatters onto the background, popped up the image and added a few gems.

Coloring for calm daily calendar image, colored w/markers
Crafters workshop, balzer designs - stencil with ink
Hero Arts - all occasion messages sentiment stamp
Gems

Hope your week is off to a great start!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Connie
