I have to admit, color challenges scare me to begin with, which is one of the reasons I always push myself to play along with the Hues to Use (well, that and Marcy has so many beautiful images that I want to color!) but when I saw what Tosha wanted us to do I was scared and intrigued! I immediately thought about doing some of the new mushroom images in grayscale but I'm not even going to lie, I tried it and hated it! Those images are now sitting in my circular file with a stream of naughty words still hanging in the air of my craft room. I walked away for a few days and decided to step back to the table this afternoon and grabbed the clear set Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas for my next try.
I used my C copics to color in the gerberas, going with C0-C5. As I finished coloring I liked how it looked but I couldn't figure out a layout so I headed over to Pinterest to look at the Power Poppy board and their sketches. I found one that I thought would go good with this image and ran with it!
The patterned paper is some retired SU Neutrals DSP that I have in my stash and it was perfect for this challenge. I don't think the photo really does it justice, I really like how the card came out!
Thanks for stopping by!
