Enjoy the Moment

There are just so many elements in this card.  I loved using this beautiful Magnolia, with these dainty leaves.  To add just a small punch of color, I added the ladybug which just acted as the perfect contrast for the rich green leaves.  All the coloring was done with the watercoloring with markers technique, a technique which can be found in the library.  The background is a mix of sponging and pan pastel, a technique which will be featured later on.  All these together, create a soft, yet vibrant look!
