30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 10 – Mother’s Day card

logoHello and welcome to day 10 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I am hanging in there. Today I had to stop and start coloring to run errands and take care of some administrative work for my business. But I am happy to say I completed the card from the image I began coloring yesterday.

day10aI finished coloring a second pair of the flowers and then cut them out as well as the leaves.

day10bI then used my Memento pen to go around the fresh cut edges for a more finished look.

day10cInspired by Kathy, I pulled out my distress inks and added some more color. Using different color mediums on a project can really bring them to the next level. They softened any hard lines on the flowers.

day10dI colored a third flower center so that I could have three levels of dimension on the final card. I also embossed some cardstock and diecut a stitched circle on my Cuttlebug. I also played around with cutting out several petals on for the top layer to make the flower look more dimensional and curled the petal edges so they would raise nicely.

day10eI used my MISTI to stamp a new sentiment I just bought this week at Michael’s from Hero Arts.  I layed out the circle like I wanted it and positioned my stamp right where I wanted it to go and then inked it up.

day10fIt came out great. I love this tool because it takes the nerves our of sentiment stamping for me. Nothing like ruining a pretty project with a messed up impression.

day10gWhile I had the stamp on the MISTI, I inked up and stamped another sentiment so that I could make another card soon.

day10hYou didn’t think I used any of the leaves I fussy cut did you? Well I did. I placed one more on the right side with dots and my tweezers. I love the way it looks with this extra leaf.

day10jI added Wink of Stella clear to the centers for a touch of shine. and you can see the dimension of this card from this shot.

day10iMy final card came out pretty cool. I definitely going to make some more.

Happy coloring friends. I have two appointments tomorrow so I may post late but I will see you tomorrow.
