I stamped and colored this card yesterday, but didn't really like it so put it to one side for the night. When I came back to it today, it wasn't as awful as I thought and I only needed to cover up one poorly colored flower for me to think it was okay.
I couldn't get the purple Copics to blend at all so my flower looked like a kindergartner had colored it! For the rest of the flowers, I didn't even attempt to blend! I fixed the purple problem by stamping it again on a scrap and sticking it over the top with glue dots. I also left the leaves intact and decided I liked that look so cut down the white panel to fit onto a Coastal Cabana card base. I went over all the flowers and leaves with clear Wink of Stella.
I started out using the colors from Color Throwdown, but the end result is a bit brighter, so I hope it's still okay. The sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch was also used, but again, I deviated a bit :) I'm also entering this into Darnell's NBUS challenge and this week's CASology challenge. I have had this Verve flower stamp for months, but this is the first time it's been inked up. Surprisingly for me, this is the first time I've used NBUS since Darnell's challenge went live. Maybe I need to buy some more schtuff...
Thanks for visiting.
