Power Poppy's Going Green March 2017 challenge

This month I'm getting an entry in to Power Poppy's challenge. I have been an admirer and user of their images for quite a while, but have never entered their challenges! Now is your chance too, if you'd like to enter a card or two!!
I thought I'd get one in last month for the no-lines challenge, but did not get my image colored. So....this month I colored up the image I printed off in no-line style for the going green challenge!

Here's the Power Poppy challenge link: http://powerpoppy.blogspot.com/2017/03/lets-get-coloring-folks.html

This is the image I used. I zoomed in on the large dahlia and cropped it in Microsoft word.   http://powerpoppy.com/search?type=product&q=hello+dahlia
Here is the finished card and images leading up to it:
 



 

I colored the image with only four Copic markers: G28, G07, G14, YG23. I started trying all the darkest G28, but quickly found out the best way would be to color one petal at a time. That was actually quite satisfying to see it come together that way. I suggest trying that on your next no-lines project!!
Other items used are Stampin' Up! cardstock, Avery Elle sentiment and Lawn Fawn alphabet letters, Sizzix scalloped square die, WeRMemory keepers embossing folder, and some light green glitter glue.
Thanks for checking out my card and I'd love to hear your comment if you want to leave one!

A Celebration of Favorites ADFD (1)

A Day For Daisies is closing down their blog and having a final blog challenge for us to enter our favorite ADFD cards. I have to admit, I'd had this image in my stash with this idea for quite a while before I finally made it a reality.
The image is colored with Copic markers and the background was made with inks and a cloud template. The sentiment is put together with a Lawn Fawn alphabet set.
Thankfully, ADFD is keeping their shop open, and it's loaded with tons of fantastic images covering all occasions! This image, kangaroo ballet, is available in the shop still too!
ADFD still has their Facebook page available as A Day For Daisies Community, so come join in if you are not already a member!
Here's another shot showing off the tulle I stitched directly onto my card. This 3-D tulle makes this one of my favorite cards!! (The tulle was first folded in half and I did a running stitch up the side of the fold line to pleat the tulle and then poked a few holes into the card with my sewing needle and thread to adhere the material!)                      Thanks for checking out my post!
Well I didn't get this linked up, but it is still one of my favorites, so I'll still put up the post!
