So you may have noticed (especially if you follow me in Instagram) that I have been trying hard to participate in the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge as much as possible this month. I really am trying to eek out more coloring, even if only for a few minutes. So this card is a reflection of that as I found the perfect way to use the sketch by Karren Johnson for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Karren is an amazing Copic colorist and this sketch lends itself to colored images, bold panels and word dies, among other things.
I chose to use this new Mondo Gerbera Daisy by Ellen Hutson as my focal image. I stamped in black ink and then colored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I chose a number of corals/reds/pinks to play with the shading on the flower. It didn’t take long and I love it. The flower reminds me of the Gerbera Daisies my dad would grow when I was little. There is something velvety and special about these flowers and I was thrilled that Ellen came out with this one.
A super quick post today. I’m back at work this week and it seems harder that usual after spending time at my mom’s last week. Off to bed to be ready for winter weather fun tomorrow! I hope you have a great day and will play along this week. See you soon.
