Multi-Inspired Card

This card is definitely not a combination of colours that I would typically use but I absolutely love the way it turned out. I was looking around the SCS colour challenges for inspiration and ways to actually use purple (since I never do) and came across colour challengeCC207, and thought it was stunning (I realize there is no purple but it also uses colours I never use).

When I was looking in the gallery for this particular colour challenge I saw this card that Jodi created (whose blog you HAVE to check out - it is AMAZING). If I could make myself stamp like anyone it would be her! SO I took this card and ran with it as inspiration changing a few of the details to make it my own, but maintaining the general sketch therefore qualifying for Mojo75.I just love the way the flower turned out on this card. It's even better than I had planned. I stamped the image in StazOn jet black so that when I coloured it with my markers the colours wouldn't run. Then, I coloured the flower petals with my SU Summer sun marker and then added some shading with my pumpking pie marker. Finally, the center of the flower was coloured using my blender pens and kiwi kiss ink.

Supplies

Ink: StazOn jet black, SU summer sun, pumpkin pie, kiwi kiss
Paper: SU basic black, ww, summer sun, pumpkin pie, hawaii papaya dp
