friendship is the sweetest flower...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Rosemary here today with another card made using the new Dear Daisy stamp set as well as the Delightful Sentiments stamp set.

I don't often watch crafty videos, but recently I started watching videos posted by the amazing Kristina Werner.   She posted a video on coloring images in a dramatic way using ZIG Clean Color markers.   After watching the video several times I decided that I wanted to use one of the color combos she used to color the image I used for my card today.   I started by stamping the image using VersaFine CLAIR Acorn ink on smooth bristol paper.  I then began by coloring the image using the Carmine Red marker from my collection of ZIGs and clean water.   A small amount of color is laid down and then spread out using the water.  Once the first layer was mostly dry I added in some orange.  I finished up by adding in dark brown to deepen the shadow areas.  The leaf was colored with ZIGs in mid green and olive green along with a little bit of dark brown.  Once the image was completely dry I trimmed it out with my detail scissors.  The sentiment was stamped using VersaMark ink on vellum, embossed in white and then trimmed down.  I adhered the flower to a kraft cardstock panel that was die cut with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle and then I adhered the vellum strip on top of the flower.   I really quite pleased with how the flower turned out!  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of bright colors.
