The past few weeks our youngest son has been taking swimming lessons each day. So for 45 minutes I’m on the sidelines watching him. So, I decided to bring my Copics and some images to colour each time, and I can usually get one image coloured during the lesson. It’s been fun because seeing a lady with a whole lot of fancy markers really seems to attract kids! They are fascinated with seeing what I’m doing, all my colourful markers and are full of questions! I love kids, they have such innocence and ask anything without worrying what you think, and they are always so interested to learn more.
This was one of the images I coloured on one of the days. It’s a lovely digital image from Power Poppy called Seeds of Today. Isn’t it a beautiful quote? It challenges me to think about what seeds I’m planting today. Printed on XPress it Blending cardstock, coloured with Copics (with a little white accenting on the flower with a white sharpie), and then die cut with one of my old Spellbinders dies. Blue and white are such a lovely crisp combination, so I kept the basic design really simple.
Some lovely embossing in the background and a great big satin bow are all it took to finish it. I really wanted that sentiment to shine. Here’s the Copics I used below. Bow, blue and blossom are all my B’s in this design.
And this is just another little reminder that our Power & Spark Challenge, B Happy, is still going on for another two weeks. Enter to win a Power Poppy stamp set of your choice!
Here’s the Bloom Brigade and Instant Garderners in action today....you’ll see a brand new and gorgoeus digi along the way today too, a not to be missed new design!
