Our Guild ( has a theme of pick an artist, create some artwork in his/her style and then do something calligraphic with that style... I love Laurel Burch's colorful style. I have several rubber stamps of her images done by Stampendous. They're fun to stamp and color...

I hand drew everything on Canson Biggie watercolo CP paper (smoother side).  Outlined it with a gold gel pen and a Micron for the lettering. And then I realized I had done it on a 9 x 12 paper. Sigh. So scanned it and stitch it together (my scanner only fits 8.5 x 11" paper...). Resized it to fit regular paper and printed it out on another pieces of the watercolor paper. Then had to outline everything again. Double the work.

Most of the piece was colored with Ecoline inks. 

The background of the flowers and leaves was done with Magic Color "Olive Green".

The background of the lettering was done with various Calligraphica Crystals from Russia. They have a shimmer to them.

Quote: I live within the vivid colors of my imagination, soaring with rainbow feathered birds, racing the desert winds on horseback, wrapped in ancient tribal jewels, dancing with mythical tigers in steamy jungles. Laurel Burch
