Pretty Pink Posh – Cherry Blossoms

Hi Friends!

I’ve been trying to color more with stamp sets I have purchased and have not gotten to play with.  How pretty are these Cherry Blossoms??  Not my coloring (LOL)…but specifically the awesome images from Pretty Pink Posh!  And that script…LOVE the scripted dies!

In the past, I have spent HOURS coloring using Tombow Markers.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out THIS post that I did using the Ellen Hutson Mondo Sakura stamp.  You can easily spend hours layering colors.  Since I’m pressed for time and coloring as quickly as I can, this card is done with just one layer of color.  It’s also more difficult to add layers of color with these images because the lines are not as defined between petals.

I concentrated the color towards the center of the flower and drew the color out using a damp/wet brush.  You can always add more color but it’s hard to take away the color with Tombows – adding water and using a napkin (or my absorber) to pick up the water will pick up some of the pigment but not a whole lot.

As usual, I colored LOTS of flowers and leaves and had plenty to make an arrangement, but I decided to split them into two clusters to add the Hello Friend Script die-cut sentiment in the center.  I stacked three layers of these words for added dimension in black cardstock.  Before adhering everything down, I ink blended the background with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for some color.  To finish the card, I added some Clear Droplets in 4 mm and 6 mm from Pretty Pink Posh.

If you haven’t tried coloring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens yet, you should try it!  I think it’s a great coloring medium!  The Kathy Racoosin 30 Day Coloring Challenge is going on right now so I encourage you to try and color for 10 mins every day!  I’m trying!

XOXO,
