Friday Flowers

Hello and happy Friday! We have a new color challenge posted at StampTV. I used images from Aloha and Hope Grows on my card.

This week's colors are Wild Dandelion, Red Hot and Black Onyx. I hope you'll play along. One random player will win the stamp set of their choice from Gina K Designs!

I stamped the plumeria flower, from Aloha, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, starting with Y17 where I wanted the color the deepest.

Added Y13.

Added Y11, leaving a bit of white space for highlighting. Then I used my blender pen to soften the color line and let some color bleed into the highlighted area.

Used a C3 marker to add a little shadow where the petals overlap.

I sponged Vivid Brick Red ink on a rectangle of Pure Luxury White.

Stamped the branch, from Hope Grows, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The flowers were cut out and popped up on the background using Pop Dots. I added a self adhesive pearl to the centers. I layered with Pure Luxury Red Hot, Black Onyx and Wild Dandelion. The card base is Ivory.

Thanks for the visit. I hope you have a great weekend!

What a stunning, eye-popping card. Thanks also for your tutorial on how you colored the flowers. I'm still learning to color with my Copic Ciao markers and this is helpful.

The depth of colors on this card is absolutely stunning! Love the faint outline around the flowers - makes them really pop. Thank you for this tutorial!
