Good morning! It's a Power Poppy Digi's on-the-Fives Release day today, and I had the opportunity to color Marcy's lovely Created to Create digital image. I printed this one out on the small side--my card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2", so the image rectangle is only about 3-1/4" x 4-1/2". I'm thinking that I'd print it a smidgen larger next time I color it though! I printed the image in light gray, and the sentiment in a mid-tone gray. (The sentiment is from an earlier Power Poppy digital set, Peonies.)
The Created to Create digital image comes in two versions--with and without a sentiment on the page. I chose to use the one without a sentiment so I could get a thank you card made. Yes, I'm unapologetically multi-tasking! :-)
Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color this image--a LOT of them! Of course, I needed to fill all of the watercolor pans with a rainbow of color, and that took nine colors right off the bat. (As always, you can click for a larger image.)
After I finished coloring the Created for Creativity image, I pulled out both my Copic Opaque White and my Clear atyou Spica Glitter pen to add a few extra touches to the centers of my daffodils, as well as my highlight areas.
You can see the glittery bits a little better in this close-up, as well as the little dots of Opaque White for stamen in the yellow daffodils. I hope you get a chance to see what the other Power Poppy Instant Gardeners did with both the Created to Create digital image AND a second digital set, a remix of Juicy Strawberries. Check the Power Poppy Blog for a full list of participants; I've linked below to the ones whom I know are participating, but there may be others too! Thanks for stopping by today,
