A Day For Daisies Small World


We have a new challenge starting today at our Stamps R Us blog and our sponsor is A Day For Daisies.  I've been having fun coloring some of Tammy's digital images, my card above uses her free image called Small World.

The flowers in this image just spoke to me and I had to sit down with my Copic markers...  I used YR24, YR21, YR01, YR68, YR65, YR61, C00, R85, R83, R81, R20, E00, E000, E04, E25, E29, E53, E99, Y11, Y21, YG67, YG63, YG61, YG11, B21, B23 background colors BG0000, YG11. 

To mat my finished picture I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch set.  I needed a simple layout so I printed the sentiment from TLC Creations and also used Stampin' Up! Brocade Blue and Rose Red cardstock and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.


This is my card that's posted on the Stamps R Us blog today.

We were at a band concert for my two youngest kids before school let out for the summer and I noticed a woman seated in front of us with her kids.  One of her little girls climbed up in her lap and I was surprised and delighted to see the little girls hair was exactly the same color as her Mom's.  I have a 21 year old son who has copper red hair, when he and my mother would put their heads together they had that exact match too. 

I colored this wonderful image with Copic markers G28, G24, G82, G40, G20, BV0000, BV000, BV01, YR24, YR21, Y21, Y00, B23, B21, BG0000, R35, R37, R22, E000, E0000, E00.  My layout is really simple to showcase the image and the sentiment is from Create With TLC, a freebie she offered awhile back on her blog.

Simply beautiful!

I have a hair fascination too, and a hair "pet pieve" but we won't go there! Copper red hair has always been my favorite and with a bit of curl like these girls have is my definition of perfect. Great coloring - you continue to amaze me.

Hugs,
Lisa
