Hello and welcome back!!
Hope you all are doing well.
Since summer is winding down
I thought I'd share some fun coloring tips,
for flowers, I've stumbled upon.
I think you will really love this kit.
Today I am specifically using the Outline Elements sheet from the kit
I printed that sheet onto vellum. (Works great with either ink jet or laser printers)
Alcohol Ink applicator and some felt pads
I colored all the foliage and then moved onto the flowers.
I chose a darker pink to start out with
Once the blending solution is added to the pad and pounced
it will tone down that color.
Since there was quite a bit of color on the applicator from applying the alcohol ink,
I pounced the applicator onto the smaller flowers
Next I used a blue to some of the other blooms on this page. Did the same technique to the bloom portion and then went back and very lightly added green to the leaves.
Ok so here are the images all colored and fussy cut,
Ready to assemble the card.
I finished two cards using the flowers and foliage from the sheet.
I hope you try using vellum and coloring this way. It's really easy and I love the results
I know you are probably wondering, gee what about glossy paper. Well I will be back tomorrow to share how I worked with the glossy paper and the results on that.
I am submitting my cards to the following challenges:
