Hi there and a very happy Friday to you! Do you have big plans for the weekend? Any crafty time set aside? I wanted to share a card I made for the newest Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge hosted by the incredibly talented and super sweet Copic Diva, Cindy Lawrence. She has really thrown down quite a challege....just take a lookie....
Ok, so time for a true confession here...I have never tried the no line coloring technique. Nope, never. To be honest, it has always scared me to pieces. I am and always have been a color in the lines kinda girl....I need my lines....lol. So, this really was quite a challenge for me but I swallowed hard and plunged ahead. I have to say, I really enjoyed the process. I spent a good bit of time coloring my image but it was a learning process.
I started by using a second generation stamping of an image from the Dream Wedding stamp set using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on to some Rustic White card stock from Papertrey Ink. I colored my image with a ton of Copics....I am a little embarrassed to list them all, but I will list them below. Next, I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set with PTI's Smokey Shadow ink. Then, I die cut my image with a My Favorite Things die, sponged on some Ranger Distress Ink in Iced Spruce, and layered it with a die cut panel from another My Favorite Things die. I trimmed a white card stock panel, rounded the top corners, stitched a bit of patterned paper, spritzed a few inks around, added some PTI Chai and Chamomile distress inks along some edges and then adhered my layered image. A silver cord bow finishes off the panel....all that was left was to adhere the assembled card front to my card base. As an afterthought, I pulled out my Wink of Stella clear brush pen and added a little shimmer to the cake which led to me pulling out my Copic Opaque White to add a couple of highlights to my finished image.
Leave it to Marcella to imagine the ultimate botanical wedding cake! Wouldn't you just love to see one of these in real life?!
One last parting photo of Marcella's dreamy cake. What fun this was to color up!
So that is all for my card today, but several of my Bloomie sisters have created some show stoppers for your no line coloring inspiration. You do not want to miss a single one of these beauties...trust me. Make sure you leave them a little blog love as you visit and then why don't you join along in our new challenge? When you are done, link up your photo to the Power Poppy blog post for a chance to win a prize!
I am so glad you could stop by today. I hope you have a great weekend and until next time, take care....
