Hi everyone! Glad to see you today! I hope your week is going well so far. I am starting to adjust to the fact that summer has really begun and my boys are home from school. That also means a little more flying for us airline people so that we can get all of you to fabulous destinations! What does that mean…well, I have to be pretty efficient with my stamping time! *smile* Good thing Karren has an awesome sketch for us over at Freshly Made Sketches this week. We can always count on her to color something amazing and so it is no surprise that she created a sketch that is perfect for colored images. (Just in time for The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and, hopefully, a place to use some of the things you are coloring)
I chose this sweet bouquet from Gina K Designs and pulled out my Copics for a little bit of “me” coloring time. The little flowers are so fun and because the are small, the image doesn’t have to be time consuming. Perfect! You know what I found out?? I used some soft blues for the jar, namely the B3X Copics and specifically B32 (with a little bit of B00). The new Balmy Blue Card Stock from Stampin’ Up is a great match to this blue family and it is really, REALLY pretty! There are packs in the new catalog that have only the new card stock colors and I cannot recommend enough that it is a good add for you. The colors are clear and happy and really pretty! The revamp has been super on point, in my opinion. Enough with the gushing on card stock…yeah, I know….but really, the colors are wonderful. I added a sentiment from the same bundle and called this one done. No extra embellishments (although I did try) and I love the clean simplicity of it.
Well, I’m looking to get in some more coloring and I hope you will too. You can find many examples on social media using #thedailymarker30day and you can use that to get all kinds of support from those joining in. I hope you have a happy Wednesday. Until next time, thanks for stopping in!
