PTI February Blog Hop

So over the weekend I was anticipating this blog hop and didn't know what I was going to do. I did however want to try something I'd been thinking about for a while - which was trying coloring images on different colored cardstock. So I pulled out the Year of Flowers: Daffodils set. I'd bought it a little while back but hadn't had a chance to use it. I stamped the image on Fine Linen, Soft Stone and the Guide Lines 1 Grid cardstocks. All were colored with Copics (originally stamped with SU Sahara Sand - I wanted the stamped image color to be more muted).
The first image here is the one stamped on the Guide Lines Grid paper. I think this one's my favorite. I stamped the sentiment in New Leaf ink.






The second card is stamped on Soft Stone. I kinda like yellow and grey together. I masked the same sentiment to just use the word "hello" and stamped in Smokey Shadow. Not my favorite - I was having some trouble with my shadowing ;-(













And for the last card - stamped on Fine Linen cardstock. The sentiment is stamped in Kraft ink.

It was a fun little experiment. I actually did another card - stamped on Kraft cardstock and colored with Prismacolors - that'll be a post for another day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tulips definitely make me think of spring! You did a gorgeous job coloring on the different bases…Im too afraid to color on anything other than white, lol!

Beautiful cards. Great coloring. I too like the first card with the guide lines. Very different.

Love that pretty yellow daffodil! Looks so springy. My favourite one is the one on grid paper. Gives it a botanical look. I think the one on kraft would be interesting as well.

I love how you stamped the same image on 3 different colored card stocks and colored them in. Each looks so unique. I think I like the soft stone the best!! Your coloring and shading is beautiful on each of them too.

Large grid paper as a BG--what a terrific thought! Well done.
