Let's Get Coloring

Hey guys welcome to my little corner of the world! Today I am participating in Craftin Desert Divas Let's Get Coloring Designer Creative Challenge.

Before I get to the challenge can we chat? Look I'm not trying to be dramatic, regardless of what my hubby says about me, but I thought I would warn you that today's card is inspired by true events. You know like in the movies.

I spent my weekend sick with what has to be the WORST summer cold EVER. Okay maybe I can be a little dramatic, but my cold inspired my card!

I spent a lit of time thinking about my go to items for adding color to my Digi Images. I'm a fan of most mediums, but today I grabbed for some of my alcohol markers. I think part of the reason I like alcohol markers so much is they make me look like more of an artist than I really am. You don't have to be an expert in using alcohol markers to give your images a little bit of depth. If you're just starting out two markers in the same color family can go a long way.  So that's what I did today; I grabbed two of each color in each of the color families I was using. I grabbed my Spectrum Noir markers and colored in my images and since I was using two colors per color family it took about 15 minutes to color in. I set my images aside and pulled out my Polygon Stencil from Craftin Desert Divas and got to work on my background. I tapped on some Distress Oxide Ink in Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Fired Brick. For good measure I used some of the Fired Brick with water and flicked over the front of my panel.

I layered my panel on some black cardstock, added that to my Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper card base, I glued the volcano and palm tree down flat to my card front. I then popped up the stegosaurus with some foam tape and finished it all off by adding some Lollipop Sequins and my cold medicine inspired sentiment.
