Here is a simple design I made for a friend in California, using the poppy from "Stately Flowers 1". (Incidentally, I would send this to someone in another state just as well even with the California on it, LOL!* I just love the names of things in a design) I just love Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion together with White and Black Onyx! After coloring my poppy with Copics, I used BV31 Pale Lavender to go all around the flower in circles like muted watercoloring and I really like how it turned out! (Purple, complimentary color to yellow, even as light as this, really makes your yellows pop and glow.) I planned to do a coloring tutorial for this one, but I forgot to take photos of a couple of the steps, so I will redo for you! These colors are Y06, Y17, YR68, G12 and G24.
The reason for the triangle in the sketch, I had a scrap I needed to use! It gives the design a lot more interest and energy, though (perhaps suggests a mountain, too?? dunno) I added a teeny bit of black bling and stamped the poppy again in Versamark peeking out under the mat, love this watermarked detail! Card also uses Pure Luxury Grass Green.
Hope your week is off to a terrific start!
*But I do know lots of peeps in CA!!
