Be Still and Listen

Today I'm featuring another card that has Prismacolor pencils over Copic markers.. The image is from one of my favorite new series at Stamping Bella - the Bundle Girls.
This image is for the color challenge this week at CAS Colours & Sketches.
I felt the colors worked well with this image.  And it was fairly fast to color as the flowers just needed a bit of shading.  Because the colors are so light it was difficult to get the added touch of shadows needed with only markers.  So I went over the image with pencils.  While the pencils did add depth and smoothness, it is not as evident as in other cards I've colored.  However, I didn't take photos of those and I did this time!  I'll have to remember to take before and after photos again, on an image where it really shows.  This is with just the marker:
And here it is with the pencils on top:
You can see how it added a bit more contrast and smoothed out the shading.

I wasn't sure about the sentiment until I ran across this one.  I had never used it before but it seemed tailor made for this image!  I added the frame in white and stacked three Daffodil Delight frames underneath giving it just a hint of yellow.
