fanstatic flower images then she generally draws from flowers in her own garden.
And THEN something else happened (I think me being a guest designer was meant to be), I get monthly emails from Amy Shulke at Vanilla Arts witha free image and the "recipe" for coloring it. Amy also has monthly instructional Livestream for a small fee, well wouldn't you know it this months video was on coloring this exact PowerPoppy Layer cake image.
YIPPIE!!!!!! I signed up immediately and boy am I ever glad I did.
Her Livestream instructions are the best I have ever seen. Her approach to coloring is great and helped me tremendously because she
doesn't concentrate on "light source" which I have always had a hard time with.
However, following her instructions you can see how much dimension you
can add and this was my FIRST class of hers.
Thr background was done using Distress Inks and the image was colored
primarily Copic markers. Then she uses Prisma pencils and
Staedtler triplus fineline pens to add in details. Just the small details she teaches you makes all the difference in the world.
So working together with a Power Poppy image and Amy's instructional videos
it was a win win for me and I am sure it would
be for you also, so check out PowerPoppy images and then head on over
and see what is going on at Vanilla Arts.
Oops, sorry got sidetracked a bit. I made the card by cutting out a
rectangle in the center of the front panel because I wanted to
mount the image behind the cut-out. Then using a Gina Marie die
I cut the magenta loopy rectangle, then had to cut the center part out.
I embossed the white panel using a Cuttlebug folder and added a few sequins.
The sentiment is also from PowerPoppy that I printed and cut out using
my Cricut Explore.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around and reading
through my long-winded post.
