Challenge #70 Sepia

This week the one and only Diva, Laura Harms has challenged us to use the color Sepia in our work.  I have discovered that just like any other color, Sepia pens come in a lot of varied shades.  The 1st tile I did is from a Sepia Micron Pen set.  I found that this shade of Sepia was so dark, it almost looked like the black pen I used.  To lighten it up some, I shaded with a brown colored pencil.  Then I found a brown Micron Pen and used that for my second tile.  I found that to be more the shade of Sepia that I was looking for.  Again, I shaded with a brown colored pencil.  I spent time the last 3 days, shopping for plants, and filling spots in the yard and flower pots, while Doug planted the garden.  We both love, love, love, this time of year and making our world a little more beautiful with plants!
