Baby Bacchus Counts Blessings

     OK, another CAS card today using only a single layer and one ribbon for embellishment.  The image is by Rick St. Dennis, called "Baby Bacchus."  Isn't he fantastic?  He just looked like he should be on some kind of harvest card.  Since I lived for a long time in both of California's grape vineyard and wine country areas, I thought this would be a perfect California Thanksgiving card.  :-D


I took my colors from the challenge at
MFP Speedy TV -- Rust, Blue and Green

     I loved coloring this image!  It really lends itself to great shading and depth.  It's colored with ProMarkers.  The sentiment is done with a computer font and printed right onto the card front at the same time I printed the image.  I added the rust ribbon and tied a bow.  That was it!  Done in minutes.

     Challenges:
Artistic Inspirations
Digistamps 4 Joy
Eureka Stamps
House That Stamps Built
Male Room
Outlaws Greeting Cards
Paper Shelter
Through the Purple Haze

     That's it for today.  Hope your weekend is going well and that you have some wonderful "Me" time.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I love your sketch, ribbon and awesome coloring. I must confess that the image is strange to say the least, but being from wine country, if it works for you, then go for it. I think the little guy is growing on me...haha

Teresa Arsenault said...

I love this little guy and I am SO glad you let him steal the stage on your card. You coloured him beautifully and the brown ribbon and bow are the perfect accents. Nothing else is needed. Love this design. :)
Hugs,

Oh my goodness NC - your card is absolutely stunning. The colors you used are perfect, your coloring makes the adorable image just pop off the page. I sure like this Rick St. Dennis image too. I just colored my first one a few days ago as a DT.

With hugs and smiles
