Hello again! While awaiting the arrival of a whole batch of newly released Power Poppy stamps I felt it was a good time to pull these not-yet-colored Pansies out of my digi box.
Pansies are such a pretty flower with a cheerful countenance, as though happy to be among the first to welcome springtime. I didn't give my pansies much of a face with this coloring. Just a bright spot of yellow and lots of rich violet.
I lightened the image before printing so I could color no-line style. No line coloring doesn't mean the image has to be practically invisible. This was clear and distinct and easy to see the outline and suggested shading areas, but by the time it was colored the lines had all disappeared. Darker colors like this are a sure thing for swallowing up those lines.
Flowers aren't always shy about their colors and markings. The following Copics on X-Press It Blending Card produced vivid results:
Old designer paper covers the card base, and the leafy border die is cut from another scrap. Finished up with machine stitching. The sentiment is from a Power Poppy clear set -- Nice Things to Say.
I'll be back soon. Enjoy your weekend!
