Coloring Book Poppies

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying their first weekend of summer! Things in our household are much calmer now with homeschooling done. So, I can finally blog some of the cards that I worked on months ago! First up, a card I sent to my sister-in-law for her was late...but better late than never, right?!

Here's the card:
One of the things that I've really come to enjoy is coloring with Copics. Also huge this past year? Coloring books! So, I decided to combine the two. I found a small coloring book at Barnes & Noble that had tons of flower images and I took my Copics out. I LOVE making cards with these pages. Yes, they need to be trimmed down. But they are so different than just you stamping an image. It's a great way to take a mini-break from stamping but still enjoy coloring and using the pages to send a card to someone.

Once the coloring was done, I added the sentiment in white and then added some sequins. I did add some white pen accents to the centers of the poppies just to make the centers pop out a bit more and to tie in the sentiment more, too.

I'll be entering the card at the following sites:
Simon Says Monday Challenge: Use Pattern Paper (coloring books count, right?)
Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to be back a bit more regularly during the summer.
