Flower with fern

I am once again using a flower image from my daily coloring calendar.  I colored it with markers then added it to cardstock, those coloring pages are quite thin, and fussy cut it out so I could give it a little lift.  The fern and branch die were done by first applying distress inks to white cardstock with my sponge applicator and then cutting out with the dies.



Flower- daily calendar coloring image, colored w/markers
papertrey ink- hodge podge papers
Martha Stewart - border punch
Spellbinders - Foliage die (fern)
Sizzix -- Branch w/leaves die

Distress Inks -- Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend!!

Love your hodge podge papers, Connie, with this gorgeously colored flower! Wow! Lovely in every way, especially with that hint of pink/red to bring out the other earthy tones. Beautifully bordered, too! hugs, de

That's a beautiful flower and you're getting so good with your coloring, Connie! You gave the foliage such a soft and pretty look with your sponging, too. Love the design with the border top and bottom.
