Creative Confetti: Just Color!


Hello peeps! If you've been paying attention to the buzz in blog land, you know that fabulous woman Kathy Racoosin is at it again with another 30 Day Coloring Challenge over at The Daily Marker! So, in the spirit of her mission to get us all in touch with our inner coloring mojo, I decided to focus this week's Creative Confetti on doing just that! 

HOW TO PLAY: Simply pick up a coloring medium -- any one will do -- and get coloring! Just that simple folks! If you want to get in on the action over at the Daily Marker, just click HERE for all the deets! Then, after you're done coloring, link up your creation here as well on the linky below for a chance to win some Power Poppy goodness too!

On to my creation! As you can see below, I started by printing off the digital stamp Created to Create! It's been a while since I chose this one and I knew I would have fun digging into an image with some spring flowers! It was also a great image to get lost in and let my mind wander in the coloring process. 

I started with the green foliage using the Copics below....

Then, I added these markers for the yellow petals...


These shades of orange for the centers of each flower...


 A few shades of red for the paintbrush handle...


Some brown and grey shades for the brush and metal portion...


 After I colored up the paint palette, using two shades of each color, I added these two markers to add depth behind my image and bring in a wee bit of shading...


 And then these light brown shades to give a little depth to the paper pad as if the sketchbook was a little antiqued and worn...


And then, I added a sentiment from the Pure Prairie stamp set. The perfect sentiment I think!


And that my friends is it! Just a little coloring session to share and hopefully inspire you to get into your own stamping spaces to enjoy your favorite coloring medium as well!

Before I bid you adieu, it is the first Tuesday of March, which means we get the chance to showcase one lucky winner from our February Challenge! Let's throw all the virtual entries into a hat and pick a winner! 


That means the winner is....
