I must have misunderstood the weather report for yesterday. I was expecting part sun, but woke up to a drizzly day which later dried up and turned simply cloudy and dull. Is anyone having sunshine? Ah, well, I trust it will come back soon enough. By the time you read this I might be outside planting flowers. In the meantime, I decided to go ahead and color one of my favorites from Power Poppy's Spring Digital Blitz. This is Potted Geranium.
I colored with Copics all smooshy without a lot of detail. Truthfully I'm becoming disillusioned with my Copic markers. My darkest green - YG67 - started out fine while I was coloring this, but before I was finished it started going gummy and pretty much messed up my greens. Impossible to blend or color over. I won't even go into all the research I've done on this problem and everything I believe I'm doing right. Anyone else have this problem? Feel free to weigh in, please.
The background is all dotty in blue-violets, yellow, and pink, then smooshed over with the colorless blender to make it soft and painterly. I do love my Copic markers when they work right, sniff sniff.
A few clear rhinestones to decorate and a card base that matches the darkest pink... an easy finish.
Enjoy your week and I'll catch you later. Happy crafting!
