Today I decided to color a Power Poppy digital image called Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher and used two of the samples in the listing for the image as my inspiration for coloring. I just used my Prismacolor pencils today. No odorless mineral spirits this time. My friend, Barb, always inspires me when she shares her colored images. If you haven't checked out her blog, you really should.
I really liked the look of having some of the flowers come off the edge of the cardstock. I saw this one one of the sample cards and recreated it and the banner for the sentiment as well. On another sample, I was drawn to the pink and peach tulips and I did my best to get a similar look. I am fairly certain the artist used Copics on the cards that inspired me. I must say, I'm pretty happy with the final result. I almost added Wink of Stella, but decided to keep the flowers "au natural." ;) I am also pretty happy with how the leaves turned out. And once, I covered part of the pitcher, I liked it a lot more, too. The highlight looks a lot more realistic.
The plaid paper is from Lawn Fawn, the yellow cardstock is Die Cuts With a View brand. I used a ruler and pen to frame the image.
We have 9 school days left in this year. I can hardly believe it! Maybe I'll find a little more time to get crafty more often. One can hope.
In the meantime, thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a great start to your week.
