Monday March 27, 2017
Today I have a card I made just for fun.. I have been following and playing along at The Daily Marker.  Kathy Racoosin has a month long color challenge every few months.. It's where you color and learn ..well at least for me, I learn from her postings. She does videos or a grouping of photos of her work in progress. Most of her color techniques are using Copics and colored Pencils.  I love the effect it gives and added colors.  Most days I have posted something I've done on her blog challenges. I try to color every day.  Well like I said she does the pencil/copics so I gave it a good try with my card below. There has been a time in the past where I used just one color pencil with copics but not so much for added interest but for a one color simple area that I just didn't have a copic for.. Any how this is the card I did.. The large and med flowers are from Spellbinder as well as the leaves.. The large blue flower I colored with light blue copic the rest of the colors are colored pencils. The medium flowers I colored with orange copic and the rest of the flower is with colored pencils. The leaves are colored with an yellow/green copic and the rest with colored pencils. The crocus looking flower are from Simon Says and I colored with a light purple and the rest of the colors are with colored pencils. I finished the flowers and leaves with white gel pen. The background is a Tim Holtz stencil and ranger ink. The Hello is a My Favorite Things die. I used Spectrum Noir glitter pen and to finish the card I rounded the corners with my corner chomper.
So what do you think?? I know I need to practice a lot more and I have stamped different images to practice on and if they come out ok I will make into cards for future postings. It's sure been fun learning and creating.
