Triple Challenge

I combined three challenges for this card- the Splitcoaststampers (SCS) color challenge from Tuesday, the SCS sketch challenge from Wednesday, and today's challenge from The Digi Shack. The color challenge colors are Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, Apricot Appeal and any neutral. The Digi Shack challenge is "Say it with Flowers" by using a digi flower image.

Look here to see all the creations from The Digi Shack's Design sister Maui-Wowies. :)

The image is called Bud Vase. I colored the flower with my SU! Pixie Pink marker; the dimension was added by applying more marker color along the flower lines and the small inside part of the flower. I also colored more heavily along the lines of the leaves. If the receiver looks real close, this will be obvious but when looking from a normal distance at the card, it looks natural and dimensional. I enjoy spending time coloring, but there are many occasions when I want a quick card and nothing beats this technique with markers especially the high quality of the SU! markers.

I did not add many embellishments so as not to detract from the image; and I hope to send it without extra postage. ;) I hope you like it.

Have a great Thursday!
