Lockhart Tuesday - Broccoli and Bok Choy

Those words may not have you thinking about an elegant evening gown!  *giggles*

I talked about the serendipity of Karen Lockhart's images last year and I think her Vegetable Couture Collection is the perfect example.  How on earth she found inspiration in green veggies escapes me...but I am sure glad she did!!

I wanted this design to reflect the elegance of a black tie affair and used a simple inchie sketch to achieve that.  Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens and a little white gel pen did the trick.  Speaking of inchies, if you have not tried this product, you simple must.  They are made of high quality Alphamat Artcare museum quality preservation matboard.  Whew, that's a mouthful but what it means is that it takes ink and coloring mediums just beautifully.
