Jenny Gropp - You are here!
I've been in coloring mode lately! I have no ideas what the flowers are in this image.. I just went with the colors I was feeling. I don't get too hung up on making things perfect!
I colored the background first with BG10 and then a layer of BG000 extending over it. I wanted to ground the image a bit, so I added a little table line using my Memento Tuxedo Black Marker. I don;t think I've ever used YR24 & YR21 for flowers. I liked the color combo.... would be good for marigolds. In the below picture you can see the orange flowers are a little brighter - I added a layer of Y18 to brighten them up just a tad.
I forgot a color in the line up! I also used G43 in the leaves. In the lightest color flowers I did use the 0Blender to blot and remove some color.
I added some Wink of Stella... I can't resist. I hate that it doesn't show up well in pics! Stella and little bows.... on every card!
Simple little sentiment on the inside!
