Hello Friends, Welcome to The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop! Altenew has assembled all of their favorite challenge blogs for “The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop” How fun!!
I am sooo excited that “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is included in hop. Woo Hoo! To start at the beginning of the hop go to the Altenew blog . If you are coming from the Tag You’re It Challenge blog you are in the right place.
Most of you know I love flowers and butterflies and Altenew’s flowers are always so lovely and I especially love this stamp set called, “Spring Daisy” I love how you can stamp the shading on the flowers if you don’t love to color. The background was created with Simon Says Stamp dot stencil and some distress ink.
I do have a video that I intended on position today but, it’s not finished due to some travel and bad internet connections. Soo sorry 🙁 ! I will do my best to post the video in a week or two if you can wait. In the meantime if you want to watch or subscribe to my videos click here.
I used my misti and masked off the flowers with some masking paper. Everything was colored with Copic markers and then I added colored pencil accents. A little twine and a water drop finished off my card.
If you look close I added white accents to each little seed in the center of the flower…then I added a tiny black dot on top of the white dot. (yes .. its ok to call me crazy) I also added white accents to the butterfly.
I thought it might be fun to send you off with a few different color combos. This particular flower I brought the darkest color down the center of each petal like I did for my card today.
On this flower I used the “feathering” on the petals to create an artistic look. ( this technique is something I have enjoyed doing on and off through the years)
For this just a light touch down the center of the petals.
Go bold or go home lol. Love bright colors and this is a new combo for me.
Another bold color combo.
