I know an artist. (GD-FTC)

This is my second post as a guest designer over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.  :)

I hope you'll join me in this 'Super' challenge. There are multiple sponsors and prizes. Lots to win. :)

 Here's my project.

I'm actually related to an artist. My brother-in-law is a fabulous art teacher at the Art Institute in Kansas City. And he's making a name for himself around town as well. We go on a family vacation every summer and he couldn't join because he had to teach a summer semester. I thought we would send him this card to let him know we missed him. :)

I used Artemis by Rick St. Dennis. This is my first Rick St. Dennis experience and I must say that it was quite easy coloring up this image. The shading is already drawn in for you so I just added the color with my Prismacolor pencils and a few Copic markers. I used my Nestabilities circle dies, as usual. :) I printed out my own sentiment that I found on the internet. The paper is from Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook paper pad. The card base is Neenah Desert Storm.

I think it looks really cool being all black and white with a colorful focal point.

Thank you for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
