The challenge over at Flourishes this week is hosted by my pal Silke and her challenge was to pick your favorite Flourishes set to use. To this I say... Silke, Are you NUTS? One favorite set?? I have way too many! So I picked a set that I love and had not inked up in awhile. I chose to use the Berry Sweet set.
I stepped out my coloring in pictures below...  
I break the Copic rules all over the place on this one! 
 B0000 in the background for a little light blue glow. 
Blender pen to soften the edges of the blue. 
V99 is the start of color on the berries.
 Continued with R56 on the berries.
 I wanted to add a small amount of a blue undertone in the berries.
 Another layer of R56.
 I used Y17 to lift darker color and add in a subtle green tint. 
 One more layer of the R56 to finish the berries.
 The first color on the leaves is G46. 
I added more blue around the image... I wanted it a bit darker. 
G43 to finish the leaves. 
E23 on the stem. Y32 and Y28 in the flowers, using the 0 Blender to bleed the color to the edges. 


  1. LOL...yes, you know I'm nuts!!! Glad you narrowed it down :). May I just say your coloring is AMAZING and I would have never thought to use this color palette. Totally gorgeous card my friend and I'm thrilled you had a chance to play...hugs ~S~

  2. Loved "watching" you color this image! Wonderful creation Jenny!

  3. Jenny that is so pretty. :) I still have family that lives in your neck of the woods. My dad's family is in Farmington and I spent lots of summers there. I have lots of good memories of catching fireflies and picking wild blackberries with my aunt and cousins. Summertime in Georgia... Ahhh! Your berry card brings back great thoughts. I can almost smell them from here!

  4. This is full of gorgeousness. Just love it. Wishing you a wonderful creative weekend.
