Created to Create!

Hello all! Just a quickie quick post today to share a little something I colored up earlier in the week. Sadly, my entire family is under the weather so energy is at an all time low! :-(

When I saw this new digital stamp Marcella whipped up called Created tp Create, I could not help but want to print it up and color away. It was one of those that I printed and literally worked on all night while watching TV. I would ponder it, color, wait a bit, color some more, get caught up in a show, color a little, grab a snack, and yes, finish coloring! I love when I can just take my time and enjoy every bit of the creative process.

I used far too many markers to mention-- choosing sunny yellows, earthy shades for shadows and then my full color of the rainbow for the little watercolor palette. The shading was done with V0000 and V01. The sketchbook page was given a little bit of depth with the E81 marker in multiple layers. I should mention that I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the blank canvas and that sentiment is from the Power Poppy set Folk Heart. Loved how it seemed to fit perfectly!

Here's a little close up for you!

And then, the sparkle, of course, was added with different size sequins. I added some paper piercing and then some splotchy effects to my card base thanks to a paint splotch background stamp. I am not good enough to add those watercolor drops on my own! ;-)

And that, my friends, is it! I know some of my fellow Bloomies have some creative pursuits to share, so hop on over and see.....

And, I will be back again real soon with some more fun stuff to share. One reminder, I do have quite a few goodies FOR SALE HERE! I am trying to pare down my craft room and make it a little less jam packed! So, my spring cleaning effort just might be your GAIN so be sure to check it out! ;-)
