Hey peeps. I’m sharing a card I colored for the Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge. The challenge is hosted by the incredible Kathy Racoosin the owner of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. During this challenge you allow yourself a little bit of time each day to color. We never “judge” how you color but support you in how you gave yourself the time to color even if it’s just for 10 minutes a day. Coloring allows me to refocus my energy into creating something I love.
For today’s card I used Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers 2 along with the Altenew Sincere Greetings stamp set. I think the gorgeous flowers and dainty sentiment work well together. I used my Faber Castell Polychromo pencils to color this image. Here are the colors I used:
- Flowers I used 130, 131, 132, 185 and 101.
- Leaves I used 165, 172, 278 and 101.
- Background 271 and 272.
Adding white little dots with my gelly roll pen to add some interest to the background as well. This helped to keep my card clean and simple without any additional bulk.
To finish off my card I pulled out some older Stampin Up paper in hunter green to layer this panel on and adhered it to a white card base. I used the same card stock to stamp out the greeting in versamark and heat set it with arctic white embossing powder for Ink On 3. That will wrap up my card for today. Make sure to join in on the challenge over on Instgram or on The Daily Marker Facebook page. I’ll see you back here Thursday with another card.
