Pretty in pink

Hiya fellow crafters!  I made a card that I just had to share with all of you so I'm here with a super quick post.

Joanna Munster from Inspired by Stamping put out a call for some crafty people to color one of her digital images for her upcoming newsletter.  I was lucky enough to be one of the few to get my hands on the image early and color it up.

I encourage you to check out her blog here AND sign up for her newsletter.  She sends out a wonderful newsletter and it usually has an awesome freebie.  I have loved every one since I signed up.  Without further ado...

To be honest, I'm not 100% certain that sunflowers come in pink but I found several images when I did a Google search.  I wanted to color them up differently than the usual yellows.  I printed the image out on Bristol smooth paper and picked up my Zig Clean Color real brush markers.  I love these markers!  I achieved all of the different pink shades with just two pink markers and a water brush.  It's all about quantity and ratios.

When I got ready to do the centers, I added several dots with a sharpie.  I knew they would hold up under the waterbrush.  I then colored right over them.  For a little extra bling, I added an assortment of sequins from my stash.

I grabbed one of my favorited rectangle dies (it's from Craftin Desert Divas) and cut out the flower layer.  I cut a thin gray layer from MFT Stamps Steel grey.  Also a favorite of mine.  I popped that layer up with foam tape and attached it to a pink card base.  And yet another favorite of mine, Sweet Gelato cardstock from WPlus9.

Hope you all have a great day!
