Red, White. and Blue

Happy Independence Day America!  Today over at the Power Poppy Blog
is a challenge…to use your countries colors.  It’s the red, white, and blue for the USA.   So today, I pulled out the beautiful Geraniums for the challenge.
I printed the digital image twice.  One image I colored and cut out to pop up over the base image.  The base and mat were both cut out using Spellbinders dies, blossoms.  I used Copic markers to color the image and some Wheat ink from a Memento Dew Drop to sponge with the die still in place.
The paper is from the Authentique paper pad Pride.
Come join us for a fun patriotic challenge!  See what the Bloom Brigade has for your inspiration too!

The colours are so rich Danielle! I love that you really made the geranium blooms large so they’re the showpiece.

“Oooh, baby I love your ways.“ Danielle, I love how you zoomed in straight to the big ol‘ pom-pom blooms! What a showy center of deep, warm, saturated reds. You make it look like the flowers are double-blossoms with all of your shading. Love the patriotic patterns and twine, too! Hubba hubba!
