Hello Friends, Welcome to Day 2 of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” AND BLOG HOP! I am sooooo EXCITED, thrilled and honored that I have this awesome group to hop with us today.

Flowers are my favorite stamps to color and I love the new “Unicorn Awesomeness” so I thought it would be fun to combine them. The “Hello Lovely Florals” is a beautiful bouquet and is super fun to color.
I grabbed a white folded 4 bar card that’s 120 lb. The best part is that alcohol markers don’t bleed through the paper… perfect for a one layer card. This cardstock is so smooth and thick … just to note that it’s slightly different blending because of the coating on the paper. Great to have on hand!
I used some blending solution with a rag on the horse & the large flower for texture. Adding more dots with the brush tip of the marker adds even more interest. Blue halo yes please. I have been outlining the images for years with a blue marker and can really make your image pop.
Since I enjoy tracing the images with a sharpie I decided it was necessary to do on this card.
Then I added lots of white dots with a gel pen .
