Hello all! How has life been treating you this week? Wonderful, I hope! I have really enjoyed breaking out my markers and taking some time to color. Confession, I always put on some jams and many times sing at the top of my lungs when I color. It alarms my husband, who also works at home but heck, I call it entertainment. He's lucky I don't charge cover. HA!
Moving on! Did you see Power Poppy's new digital release that pays homage to some beautiful plants with equally beautiful meanings? Check it out! These beauties were released last week. There are four images in all. You can see each one of them HERE!
Today, I wanted to bring you part two of my escapade into this digital set. If you missed my first offering, just click HERE! Last week, I colored up Folklore Flora Apple!
Moving on to today's creation!
Marcella illustrated a gorgeous fig plant and ... who knew the meaning behind a fig was "enlightenment?" Not me!
I colored this image up with Copic markers and had fun just reaching for different combinations of green and violet. I stuck more to the YG greens to add a little hint of yellow to my figs. They really are so interesting in their coloring and go from a vibrant green to a deep almost grey purple. I even added a few shades of deep red here so that my figs didn't end up too grey. I real life they are but I was worried mine would look like a muddy blob! LOL!
I used V01, V06, V12, R35, R39, V09, and a bit of BV00. The leaves were G20, G40, G21, YG63, and a little bit of YG21. I had a few other colors I reached for but they were minor players.
Here's a closeup for you!
When it came to layering up my card, it was super simple because this illustration is so large. It fills an entire card front. So, I added a little punched corner, some cording and a button and ... ta da! Done!
So, again, if you want to check out this collection, all you need to do is click HERE! There are two other images in this set and... if all goes as planned, I plan to bring you my versions of them in the next two Fridays!
