Hello Friends, I hope your week is off to a good start! Today I have a card makeover for you with a beautiful Power Poppy image.
This photo is the result of the makeover and I am happy with the results. I colored this last week and for some reason I wasn’t ready to share it because it needed something else…..A MAKEOVER!
It’s such a beautiful image I wanted to give it more love when I had some spare time so I tossed it aside.
I have been outlining my images with a blue marker (Boo or Booo) for years. Love how it makes things pop. As you can see I didn’t use many colors and so my coloring came together without spending a lot of time.
You might recognize this stencil because I used it yesterday. Sometimes if you clean up to quick …like it’s ok to have some Sh*t laying around… some happy accidents might not happen otherwise lol. Because my stencil was right there I grabbed some salty ocean distress ink with a dauber to put a light layer of ink around the image. I wasn’t super worried if it went on the flowers because if you have a light hand it usually works out fine.
I like how the rectangles looked behind the soft round flowers. I wanted to add a little more depth to image so I grabbed a blue (B52) and added a line around the bottom portion only of each flower, bloom and branch.
I love the small tip end of the distress markers because it’s great for adding microscopic dots to leaves and such. In this case I added navy to my green leaves. (my brown was dry)
A line was added to the red berries with a white gel pen and a few of the flower centers (I stopped that cause there were to many flowers). By the way I don’t store my white gel pen in any particular way.
Glossy Accents were added to all of the leaves and the red berries. Be careful when adding glossy on top of a white gel pen. It can smear.
When making holiday cards these top folded cards are #120 and perfect for coloring with alcohol markers. They not only save you time but, THEY DON’T SHOW the copic coloring on the inside. (Now if you have a heavy hand and really saturate your images you might get a little bit of a shadow?)
On another note I wanted to say thanks for all of the comments on my blog. I wish I had time to say thanks to each one of you individually. Those of you who are uploading on my blog… hang tight eventually I will stop by and leave a little love. Thanks to you all for the support by participating, or leaving comments or spreading the word! You guys rock!!!
See you tomorrow 🙂 Hugs, Kathy
