Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #42

     Isn't this image just gorgeous!  The color combo of pink and green is the challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best.  Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers.  You can find this digital image here at the Digi Doodle Store.
     I've used my Copic markers to color the image and added a little light green chalking around it for accent.  The fabulous paper backing it is from a Prima paper pad called Fairy Flora that I received as a wonderful surprise from my buddy Jan.  She did reeaallly good! :)  I was coloring the image when it came in the mail and the minute I set my eyes on it I knew it was the perfect background for my hydrangeas.
     Get those pink and green lovelies linked up and you just might win a $10.00 voucher for the Digi Doodle Store!
Happy Thursday!

Tracy, your card is so gorgeous! I've always loved pink and green and the background paper is perfect for your lovely image. I'm wondering what a bow easy is. I'll have to google it.

What a beautiful card, Tracy! I love the blended colors of the background paper, and that flower stamp is just fabulous. You do an amazing job with the coloring. Lovely!

Geri said...

I IS a gorgeous image. And you've done a beautiful job coloring it! Putting a few of those new Copics to work, huh? (I still can't wrap my mind around 100 NEW COPICS!). Your new paper is really nice with this, too! It all looks lovely together! BTW, the Martha Stewart tags came from Michaels, although I've checked there several times in the last few months with no luck. It is a pretty little pack, though...with 3 different styles, 4 of each, and each one as pretty as the next. I just love 'em...better get ya some!! Keep up the good work, Tracy...have a great day!!
