Digi Images from Isabella's Sketchbook

Happy Monday everyone!

I've got a card to show you using an image from a new digital artist to the papercraft scene. Her name is Isabella Molina, owner of Isabella's Sketchbook. Isabella has recently started a new group at Paper Craft Planet that you have to check out.. there's even freebies for her members. Her images are perfect for coloring. Right now she's putting together a design team, so go check it out!

This still life shot was colored with Prismacolor pencils using Gamsol. I love my markers, but really enjoy pencil coloring. I can sometimes work hours creating a pencil image as is the case with this one.

I purchased an old dictionary (circa 1962) from my local used-book shop just for paper-crafting. 'Doesn't quite qualify as an antique or relic, does it? It was all of $1 but perfect for my repurposed projects. I selected the page that describes peaches... kind of nifty, don't you think?

I'm entering this in the One Stop Craft Challenge where the theme is fruit.

Thanks so much for stopping by.. I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Spring Day. I'll be back tomorrow with my Sassy Cheryl's challenge item, so until then, happy crafting and be safe in all you do.

Wow Peggy - you've been a busy crafter recently and I am slowing down on my commentary but I love your last few cards. Great bunnies, fabulous jester and this one is very pretty. What a super idea to buy an old dictionary and to use the "peach definition" just beneath your image! Wonderful! Warmest wishes, Lesley

What a great idea, Peggy! Love the graphic of the peach pit on the dictionary page.
I want you to know that I checked out Isabella's images and, of course, had to buy a couple!
