Coloring on the road with Thoughtful Poppies

Hello All! It’s LauraJane today:) I have a card I have been coloring with Zig Clean color markers, aka.Ziggys. Since #thedailymarker30day Coloring Challenge, hosted by Kathy Racoosin, has been taking place all month I wanted to do a bit of coloring each day. I chose to use Thoughtful Poppies stamp set with it’s lovely arrangement of poppy blooms and leaves!

I first stamped the main image from Thoughtful Poppies twice, onto Bristol Smooth watercolour paper, About 6″x 4″in size, using Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink. Then I went on a trip with my family and took my card front and Ziggys with me to color on the very long drive from St. Louis MO to Dallas TX..over 12hrs each way….no, I was never the driver, yay! lucky me:))

Here is the first bit of coloring done somewhere in Oklahoma:20170314_120122

And the next one from somewhere in Missouri on the return trip:20170318_201753When I got home, I was delighted to find the Coordinating die for Thoughtful Poppies on it’s way to my door… So I waited patiently, and thought about my next move for this card. I decided to partially cut the two bundles of blooms with the said coordinating die.

This is what It looked like after partially cutting:20170321_163340

Then I continued to add more details and depth with the ziggys. Sometimes I must force myself to STOP coloring..I think I may have overworked this one in the end…

I then cut an 8″ x 11″ CS long ways, Cut it again at 6″and stamped Minor Stripes Background with Rose Quartz. Stamped the Sentiment with Light Onyx, Heat embossed with clear EP and re-stamped the sentiment in Noir for a shadow effect.

Mounted the Thoughtful Poppies panel onto the striped BG and finished by embellishing with Cotton Candy Puff Mix

    So beautiful!! Love how it developed over time. What a great way to use the die cut for this and your background is such a great compliment to the florals.

    Living in central Missouri, we have traveled that route several times. Your card is just lovely and oartially die cutting the image is a great technique. Thank you for giving me another idea!

    Oh wow! Gorgeous card. I am in awe that you can color so beautifully while on the road. The partial diecutting is such a smart idea and those soft stripes in the background a lovely design feature. Wonderful work!!
