Tulips in Pink

I am continuing my coloring practice for The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge with this card today.  I love this retired image it is perfect for working on shading.  I also saw the Time Out Challenge #49 with their inspiration challenge: “Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow”.  Again….this image is simply perfect.  So I got to work.  I stamped with Smoky Slate (SU) ink and colored with my Copics.  Once I was done, I cut it out with a Stitched Rectangles Die.  When I put it on the white panel, it seemed a little blah so I added some stenciled sponging.  The stencil is from the Happy Patterns masks group.  I used my Ranger Mini Round Blending Tool (I love it because it doesn’t create edges).  Once I had the background on, I liked it much better.  I popped the image up on Dimensionals and added some Sparkling Clear Sequins (PPP).

FMS218 - Beautiful Thanks

Happy first Wednesday of the new year and welcome back to another year of challenges from Freshly Made Sketches!!  I have to admit that it was nice to have a little bit of time off but wow, were you all busy in the FMS gallery.  We were so thrilled to be a part of your holiday stamping and really enjoyed seeing your creations!  The oh so talented Kim Singdahlsen has a fun and unique sketch for this week and it is sure to get you right to playing with all your new holiday gifts!

The focal point of my card today is this gorgeous flower from Altenew from the set Beautiful Day.  I had been showing a friend how to use the Zig Clean Color Markers one day and this flower was the result (hers was really lovely too).  Because it was sitting on my desk calling to be used, I built the card up around it.  I stamped with the diagonal image from Gorgeous Grunge (SU) using Versamark Ink onto Basic Gray card stock and then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I did the same with the sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set.  After fussy cutting the flower and leaves, I popped them up on Dimensionals.  These lovely sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were the perfect finish, don’t you think?!

Now I will let you get to the rest of the team’s gorgeous work!  You can tell they were happy to get back to the sketches too!

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope your week is fantastic!  See you soon!
