Hello all and happiest of Tuesdays to you! Are you ready for a spring-infused color combo that's just dying to be used next time you create? Well, ready or not, here it comes! It's Hues to Use day! And this next inspiration photo is about as pretty and sweet as they come!
HOW TO PLAY: Playing along with us for Hues to Use is easy as 1-2-3 -- use all three colors in your card or creation and then make sure to share a direct link to your creation so we can all see! I know you won't be able to help yourself. You're going to HAVE to join us this week! ;-)
When I reached for a digital image to color up, I just had to print off the newest member of the Instant Garden -- Cup of Columbine. It had the flowers, the teacup AND the little egg! It was made for this color combo!
Then, I grabbed my Copic markers -- a whole fistful, literally -- and went to town coloring. These were the ones I used!
After I was done coloring up the individual portions, I did go back and add some depth with an Indigo Blue, Dahlia Purple and Chartreuse Prismacolor pencil -- just to get into those little nooks and crannies that are hard for that brush-tip of the Copic marker to reach. I also accented the centers of the flowers with a little white gel pen.
And here's a closeup for y'all!
And that, my friends, is it! I loved coloring up this image and now have one to set aside for any kind of occasion that comes my way, since I left the inside blank for now.
So, are you going to get those fingers inky and play along with me? I sure hope so! When you do, just link up your creation below! Like we always share, our guest designers are all chosen from our weekly link list, so we would REALLY love to see what you've got up your creative sleeve! It could have you playing with some digital stamp set freebies followed by some time in the Power Poppy Spotlight! Can't wait to see who our next designer will be! We will have a new round of guests coming up in the next few weeks so, stay tuned!
Thanks for popping in and we'll be back with more inspiration.... SOON!
