Good morning creative and crafty friends!
Have you been playing along with the 30 Day Coloring Challenge? I haven't nearly as much as I'd like to; but I do believe the last half of this month will afford me more time to color! Our baby girl graduates from high school next weekend...sniff, sniff. I will need the coloring therapy after that!
For my card, I chose to play with Power Poppy's Cheerful Columbine stamp set from the latest release. I love every single little thing about the image in this set. It just shouts "cheerful", and I'm all over that!
I stamped the image onto kraft cardstock (Neenah Desert Storm to be exact) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored the image with Copic Markers.
When you color on kraft cardstock, the colors will be more muted than they are on white cardstock. So, you'll probably want to bump up your colors to compensate for that.
This next photo shows the image fully colored. It's pretty; but it needs something.
Adding a background with a complementary color makes the image really stand out. My final touch was using a white colored pencil to add highlights, accents, and bright white areas on the image. Ahhh, NOW it's finished.
Here's a look at the Copic colors I used:
...and a peek at the inside of the card as well.
