Coneflower Hues

There is a new Hues to Use post up on the Power Poppy blog and so I decided to play along with it, surprisingly since purple is one of the main colors. We all know how much I love purple....not LOL However, I do love some alliums, which are the big flowers in the picture. I used to grow them when we lived in CT but have never tried them here in Alaska. They sure are pretty though!

Now, because I'm not a fan of purple I don't have many purple copic markers. Therefore while my coneflowers should be lighter at the end of the petal they are a tad darker because I don't have any light purple shades. I guess I'm going to have to breakdown and get some as a "just in case" type of thing. For the gray I used N2 to do some shading around the flowers and then I also used some gray DSP.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Beautiful! These coneflowers are one of my favorites, wonderful shading. I like the stitched rectangles angled also, so beautiful. Thanks for playing with our Hues to Use!

  2. Oh Lisa, I absolutely love your coloring and love the design as well! I am a fan of off kilter card layouts. They just add a dash of whimsy! After this beautiful creation, maybe now you'll be a fan of purple! ;-) Thanks for sharing!!
