Pretty Pastels

Evening everyone. Hope your week is starting out well.  I managed to get my wall painted yesterday, so now all the dining room is painted.  But it's becoming a house with no trim.  The walls look great with fresh new paint but we haven't gotten any of the trim replaced.  Some is bought and cut for the bedroom doors, but there it stands leaning against the wall, or laying on the floor.  But I guess eventually we will get it all done.  I guess the living room is next.  A couple years ago we had a leak in the roof, and there is now a big damaged spot on the ceiling.  (stucco doesn't stand up well to water damage, and don't poke the blisters in it, because it looks worse with chunks of it missing) Well Friday we have someone coming to look to repair it.  That type of drywalling is beyond me

Anyway onto my card.   The image was done on the silhouette.  I tried to cut it out, but the jagged leaf pattern didn't cut so well.  So I put in the black pen, and used it as a stamped image.  I then used watercolor pencils to color it in.
