ETA- This card was chosen as winner over at Pinspired Challenge

Sorry I have been MIA and  not been posting as frequently as before, but it was time I gave some more love and attention to my fine art side..yes, I have been busy with some colored pencil still life pieces. I have started giving a couple of days a week to just painting and couple to my card making and blogging. Ever since I started blogging, painting had taken a back seat. Also I would  make a card , post and stay on the computer browsing , leaving me with absolutely no time to sketch or paint..no wonder it's called  the web!.

 About 2 weeks back I became a part of a sketching challenge where we are given a subject to sketch ever single day and I needed that desperately! It  turned out to be a good drawing practice for me and of course along the way I rediscovered my love for colored pencils (watercolor had taken over!) and it's ability to deliver some photo realistic paintings. I am very far from photo realism as yet, but I hope to get there 'some day', and until then I shall keep  trying and painting!

Coming back to card making ...here is a card I made for Pinspired challenges. Have been wanting to play along for a while now, but just never made it ....anyway here it is...

 I went with the colors in the picture...lovely pastels. For some reason pastels, pretty, pinks, purples  scream mother to me, so I thought this would be a perfect Mother's day card.

The inspiration pic kept calling me, guess why?

....color pencils..of course!
