Guest Design Card for Make It Crafty -Copper Colored Metal Challenge!

It's Friday...Friday...anyone else ever get that song stuck in there heads on Fridays?....Hope I'm not the only one...LOL! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday in anticipation of a great weekend! No fun for me though this weekend as I will helping hubs get caught up on his school work...oy....


Anyways, I have a special project to share today! Tracy from Craftezee once again asked me to GD for Make It Crafty challenges and I definitely couldn't pass up the chance to play with these stunning images! I was amazed she even considered me because the whole team has some outstanding and very talented color artists already! :)

This weeks challenge theme is "Copper Colored Metal"...a bit challenging and intimidating at first thought until I found the perfect image in the Make It Crafty shop to use!

I tried to keep my card a little plain and simple to show off more of the coloring this time, since after all this is a coloring challenge! The other awesome part about the Make it Crafty challenges is you don't even have to have a completed card or project to can submit just a pic of your fab coloring! How fun is that?!

The image I used for my card can be found in the Make It Crafty shop HERE!

Copper Metal Flowers: E11, E13, E15 & E18
Metal Leaves: BG90, BG93 & BG96
Metal Stems, Cogs & Bolts: NO, N2 & N4
Natural Leaves: YG91, YG93 & YG97
Dirt and Rocks: E40, E42 & E44

I did color a sky...but it's not noticeable in the I used W00 and went over it with B0000 to give the sky a watercolor effect.


SIZE: 4 x 4.25
IMAGE: Make it Crafty -"Metallic Flowers"
PAPERS: All cardstock matting is DCWV
EMBELLISHMENTS: Flat back adhesive pearls from "WOC" and copper brads from stash
TOOLS: Recollection border punch and Sewing machine
