Hi everyone, I got a chance to play with my new zig markers and a new floral die set today.
I cut a lot of the flowers and leaves in one pass on my cuttlebug, so it didn't take long to have lots of diecuts ready to colour.
I started by sponging some spiced marmalade distress ink onto the flowers with a finger dauber, then spritzed this with water to give a light orange base colour.
Then I coloured around the edges with a bright yellow zig marker. I used a water pen to blend this in. To tone down the brightness I added a touch of vintage photo distress ink on the edges. The greenery is coloured with olive green and the centres with yellow. I added a touch of sparkle with a clear wink of stella pen.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
CAS Mix Up Card Challenge where the theme is to colour diecuts.
My other elements are sponging, stamping wet embossing and die cutting.
At Less is More it's a colour challenge, olive and tangerine.
At Addicted to Stamps & More it's anything goes.
Simon Says Stamp Monday want us to add a little sparkle.
At Work it Wednesday the theme is the great outdoors.
