A wheelbarrow full of wishes...


  • This image is one I started coloring months ago.  It has been sitting in my partially done pile - and now that I was inspired to finish her, I have misplaced the artist's name.  If you know, clue me in?
  • I hand printed in the "Wishes" in the wheelbarrow, colored it with green copics, added duo glue over the top and finally added the gold foil.  That combo seemed to add a lot of depth to the word.

  • X-Press It used for the image.
  • Green CS from stash used for the A2 card base and mats.
  • Inside has an oval punched sentiment that is raised on foam tape.

  • Duo Glue and gold foil used for lettering and her boots.
  • Dark green waxed linen thread [from stash] sewn thru the image panel.  Holes punched with a 1/16 in. round hole punch.
  • Lace paper 'ribbon' is from SU
  • Grass & sky created with flicks of Copics.
  • Three "Candi" buttons were colored with Copics to match and added for composition balance on the front and one Copic colored "Candi" added to the inside.
  • Hand colored with Copics & Prismacolor Pencils:
