Rainbow Flowers

Happy Spring!

I am playing along with the Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge. The challenge is to create a project using any Ellen Hutson product based on the photos they have on the Pin-Sight Challenge blog. This months photos are below.

As you can see, there are many design elements to choose from. The shapes, the colors, linear design.  It made the challenge quite interesting.

I used the Ellen Hutson Mondo Peony stamps by Julie Ebersole.  I have used these stamps many times, I enjoy the different ways they can be colored.  For my first card, I stamped the fully open Peony and some leaves on craft cardstock.

I stamped the flower with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and masked off the flower.  I stamped the leaves and then began coloring.  I used my Prismacolor Premiere colored pencils to color the image.  For the blues, I used PC 1100, PC 902, PC 208 and PC 1103.

For the Aqua, I used PC 105, PC905 and PC 992. For the yellow-green, I used PC 989, PC 913 and PC 1004.  For the orange, I used PC 922, PC 918 and PC 1036.

For the magenta, I used PC 994, PC 993 and PC 929. For the pink I used PC 928, PC 1014 and PC 1018.  I used PC 122, PC PC 930 and PC 926 for the red

For the purple, I used PC 1009 and PC 1008. Finally, for the yellow, I used PC 942, PC 916 and PC 1003.

I then outlined the flower in French Grays, repeatedly drawing lines around the flower.

For my second card, I used the same pencils (except I didn’t use the pinks).  I stamped the open flower, masked it and stamped the second largest flower.

I cut both panels out using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies.  I stamped the Love from the Simon Says Stamp Simple Sentiments stamp set and the Love die is from Catherine Poole.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about the multi-colored flowers while I was coloring them.  I glad I stuck to it (like everyone says to).  They are bright and fun and cheerful.  I am happy with the result.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!
