No Line Coloring

Hi, lately in the "coloring" world no line coloring is
all the rage.  I have to admit I love the look of it, but not
very good at it.
So over at Power Poppy this month the challenge is......
I had to give it a try using Power Poppy image 
Tulips in a Hobnail Pitcher.  I printed it on my printer
but changed the lines to print in very light gray, probably 
too light cause it was hard to see.
I have to admit I kind of messed up, mostly on the leaves.  
All in all, though I do like the color palette and once I put it together on
a card it didn't look too bad.
I colored it using my Zig Clean Color pens on Strathmore Bristol smooth
paper, I like this paper for Zig coloring. 
I then cut out the oval using a Gina Marie die in the middle of my
checked paper.  Love this set of dies cause after you cut out the center
you also have a stitched oval piece to use.  I mounted that whole panel on craft fun foam to raise it off the base.  The circle I cut using my Cricut and then
stamped with a stamp from CTMH.  I used Catherine Pooler's Tiara ink                    and it matched the paper perfectly.  I love these inks!

Now over at Kit and Clowder this month Alyce has a class
for coloring with no lines, so after I did this I went on over and sign up                    for the class.  Maybe I will do an updated version
of this one after I have done the class, just for comparison
purposes.  I am sure it will be remarkably better as Alyce is
a fabulous teacher. 

So you have until the end of the month to join this challenge 
at Power Poppy's blog, head on over a join in.
Thanks for stopping to take a peak.
