Welcome! In celebration of Papertrey Ink's Sixth Anniversary Celebration this month, several of us using some new Year of Flowers dies with our favorite Year of Flowers set. As you see, mine is Year of Flowers: Sweet Peas. I don't know how many times I've colored this particular image since it came out! Sweet peas are such an old fashioned, delightful flower, and I love their curvy lines and delicate tendrils. Not having to "fussy cut" because of new coordinating dies definitely saves some time. I thought I would take a couple of pictures as I colored with my Copic markers just in case that will help anyone.
Here I have colored the leaves and stems using the Copic markers pictured above--the greens as the main colors, and the BV01 as shadows on the leaves.
Okay, I like pink. . . But you knew that, right? Again, the RV's are for the blossoms, and the BV's for the shadows on the blossoms. I used the colorless blender minimally to lighten a couple of areas for added contrast at the end.
I used the Parisian Lace Doily die, as well as a Tiny Tags die on the card front. The card base is clear, and the patterned papers are from the Sweet Blush Pattern Pack. I'm sure that several of the other girls have posted their favorite Year of Flowers image as well, so be sure to check Nichole's blog for a link list and details on more of the anniversary celebration giveaways. Thanks for visiting!
