A D2D Floral Bouquet and ATC's

  I am in such a floral mood lately- I took a little time tonight to make a card with a digital image from D2D or Designed2Delight.  I colored the image with Copic markers and Creative Inspirations Paints.  The paint have just been newly released, and they awesome.  (They come in over 50 colors, they are water based and a little goes a long way).  I hope you can see the shimmer- I painted it over the Copic marker coloring in the centers of my flowers.  I used Copics W1, E33, E35, YG03, YG17, Y11, R81, R83, R85.
   I made the card for a friend that entertained us last night. I used Basic Grey 'Euphoria' DP, and Nestabilities to make the frame around the flowers. Dew Drops finish off the card.
Challenges: Fab and Funky- use something new- my new Nestabilities +digi
Bloggers challenge- think Spring (I am late again)- see the side bar for the link to the group blogs
Crazy 4Challenges-Spring
SBS29 (my blogging group)- Pink, Yellow and Green
  Next, I decided to make ATC's- I still was playing with the Creative Inspirations Paint- and I used a light purple over the entire ATC background, then painted a darker Purple directly onto the rubber of the stamps (Oh I do still Love the rubber....!), and green to the stem of the flower.  The tulip stamp set is by Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I used a strip of vellum to Gold emboss the sentiment and the edges of the ATC, then backed it with SU Eggplant Envy. The Dew Drop IRL is the purple of the flower.......
I think that this purple ATC qualifies for Fun with ATC's-Monochromatic challenge, and the 365 sketch challenge for today.
  I finished up a group of ATC's I made using a Technique Junkies technique called Brayered Brilliance- I tried to take a picture from the side , so the Gold from the BG would show. Initially I made these 'all green' for a themed exchange I was in, but decided for the group exchange, I would add color to the flowers. The exchange is for the Technique Junkies, and we are interested in swapping ATC's to receive different samples of techniques .
  Thanks for stopping by- hope you were able to stop by the FCD blog hop this weekend- I had alot of fun with the digital sample and embossing on a digital image, and the design team had some incredible samples this time!
