Red and Black for Power Poppy

A new Hues To Use is up on the Power Poppy blog and as soon as I saw the, black and white....I knew I wanted to use the Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher digital stamp. I already had had it printed out on a sheet with some other Power Poppy images, all I needed to do was color it.

I grabbed my copics and started coloring the image. I had almost gotten the entire image done, I was just working on shading the leaves, when my green copic juiced! I about cried because the spot was one I just couldn't cover up. Maybe someone with more talent than I have could have fixed it but I just uttered some not-so-family friendly words and printed off another sheet of images. I switched out that particular green for a different shade and completed the coloring once again.

As you can see I used red for the tulips and part of the background paper, black for the vase and background paper and then white for the image panel and on the background paper. I left off a sentiment so the card could be used for any occasion and the circle with the image is popped up for extra dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!
