Back to Coloring!

Hi there!

It's the beginning of a new week and I'm looking forward to a warm, sunny day off from work on Tuesday - yay! 

I've been creating lots of cards using graphic and painterly images lately, and although I love the look and they are really fun to make, I really miss coloring! I looked through my photostream and the last time I colored-in a floral image was way back in May!

So I pulled out a favorite stamp set from Flourishes called, Zinnias, and went to town using my Copics. Felt soooo good! 


A simple sentiment from the same set, some strips of patterned paper to match the colors and a few gems sprinkled here and there, all help to finish off the card.

Hope everyone has a good week - thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hello Barb
What a beautiful card, it puts a smile on my face big time, the bright happy palette relates a warm and friendly feel. The design is perfect as your negative space enhances your image wonderfully.
Great work.
