Scary Roses!! :)

Roses are my favourite flowers...so when I saw this digi image from Delicious Doodles I fell in love with it and had to buy it :)  But the thought of colouring it scared me no-end!!  I've never coloured roses before and wasn't sure how I'd go with it.  I kept putting off having a go until I decided I wanted to use it on a friend's birthday card...so I took a deep breath...and me and my Copics jumped in and coloured our little hearts out lol!!  The image is partly shaded, so that helped a lot :)  I'm pretty happy with the end result and will definitely use this image again.

I'm entering this in Makeesha's sketch challenge this week, which you can see HERE.  Here's my card:


I don't think I've been this organised with birthday cards for years...I seem to be always running late these days...and I USED to be SOOOO organised :(  Maybe this is a sign that I'm back on track :)  I have quite a few birthdays to make cards for between now and Christmas.  And if I don't start on the Chrissy cards very soon, I'll be doing them at the last minute!! I hope I can maintain the roll I'm on at present :)

LOVE your card Lynne! I am still astounded by those amazing roses though! Your colouring is unbelievable! See, Cindy had the same initial thought as me! LOL! Hugs :)

Hi Lynne,
WOW!! I know the feeling about some images looking scary and I wouldn't have been able to attempt this one! You are so talented with your colouring - I think I need some Copic lessons after seeing your card!

Christine Blain said...

Good grief, Lynne - you thought you couldn't colour those roses???!!! They look incredible. As evidenced by all of the comments before mine. I can't believe they're coloured with Copics; looks like they're printed, or coloured with pencils. You have done a beautiful job. Thanks for the comment on my blog; FINALLY I've got around to taking part in Keesh's challenge, on time. Missed last week's deadline, so I'm trying to impress Helen this week!
