yellow, blue... and Altenew..

Hello my fabulous friends!

After a couple days with sunshine, we are back to rain... Oh well, more crafting for me. LOL!

You may recognize this flower from my last post... I wanted to color the same image with my Zig Clean Color pens... Same flower, different look. I love that!

Ink: VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black, Sharpie Fine Pen,  Zig Clean Color Bright Yellow (052), Deep Green (044), Turquoise Green (042), Peacock Blue (038), Dark Brown (062)
Paper: Strathmore "Bristol", DCWV "Glitzy Pastels", Paper Studio "Country Road"
Other: Clear embossing powder

To start things out, I heat embossed several leaves and flowers with clear embossing powder on some bristol paper.

The flower was painted with Bright Yellow. After it dried, I added another layer of the same color into the shadows and blended it to help build the dimension.

(You can find a detailed tutorial on how I paint with these markers HERE)

The leaves are painted with a combination of Deep Green and Turquoise Green. (isn't that a pretty color combo for leaves?)

The little flowers were painted with Peacock blue

I added in some Dark Brown into the center of the flowers and the stamen.

I decided to add in a little more detail to the yellow flower, so added some stroke lines using Bright Yellow.

To finish things off, I fussy cut along the bottom edge of the flowers and matted it with some Glitzy paper... That was attached to the card base with foam. The sentiment was stamped in VersaFine ink.

The colors for this card were inspired by Altenew's April Inspiration Challenge. It's such a fun combo! 


The challenge is ALMOST over, but you still have a little time to join in the fun!

Enjoy!
