This piece won a 1st place ribbon in the Neuland category

I love doing Funky and decorative Neuland type letters. I did 3 versions of this piece... Loved the watercolor effect of the background, but didn't like the spacing on my bottom row of letters... so created another background which was nice, but not as vibrant as the first, but at least I liked the spacing...

In between the 1st and other version I did the piece at left. I had corrected the spacing and cut it out with my electronic cutter to create letters I could transfer the embossed edge onto my artwork. I then used colored pencils on the high points, trying to mimic the coloring from the first piece. Although not as vibrant I really liked the texture. I also liked the placement of the text block better. It was done with a Parallel pen & Sumi Ink on Arches Text Wove.
