A couple of weeks ago I watched a video by Jess C showing her coloring a digital image from Power Poppy Stamps and it peaked my curiosity. Now I never saw myself being drawn to coloring flowers but I figured I would give it a shot and purchased a couple of different files. Using Photoshop I chose a file to work with, positioned it where I wanted to fall and then printed with my inkjet printer. So I am going to share one of the images I colored which is Gerbera Daisies.
I colored the images using the copic markers listed below the photo. Being someone who doesn’t always plan out what exactly she is going to do after coloring the flowers I realized that I wanted to color the background as well, just so I could tone down some of the bright white of the Hammermill #100 cardstock that I use for Copics. I placed a couple of drops of B000 and B02 various refill in an artist’s palette and used a water brush filled with colorless blender and filled in the background. Next, a black multi-liner was used to create a frame and I wasn’t finished there. I sponged some tea dye and black soot distress ink around the edges.
The sentiment is from WPlus9 Doodle Buds set was stamped using Red archival ink and embossed with clear embossing powder on a piece of Neenah #36 vellum. Did you know Neenah made vellum? I didn’t and it handles heat embossing wonderfully. Once heat embossed I cut the sentiment strip down a little more and then used a tiny stapler to adhere it to the image panel. The entire panel was then adhered to a A2 size card base of Neenah #110 cardstock.
Well that it all for me today, my parents are in town because my youngest son graduated from high school on Saturday and leave in the morning so must spend some time with them. I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day and have a great week.
