Monochromatic Flowers with Pop of Color

by | Mar 20, 2018 | Blog, Copic, Happy Thoughts, Mama Elephant

I don’t know what it is about monochromatic images that I am drawn to, but man, I am! Today I am sharing an oldie but a goodie (that is almost monochromatic). This is Botanical Hello by Mama Elephant. I colored the image back in March of 2017 as a part of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin. The challenge is simple, color for at least a few minutes each day for 30 days, and share it. Missing days is fine, hop back in when ready. It is just an encouragement to spend a little time on you each day. The most recent challenge finished up just a month ago in mid February. I was a total slacker this go around, but I sure enjoyed searching the #thedailymarker30day hashtag.

  • Stamp Botanical Hello in Copic friendly Intense Black ink on Neenah Solar White (I used 80#, but 110# works too).
  • Color botanical portion of image with Cool Grey Copic markers in C00, C0, C2, C4, C6 and C8.
  • Color “Hello” in Copic shade R39.
  • Fussy cut image. I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 (*swoon*)
  • Adhere image to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ black cardstock panel.
  • Adhere black panel to black and white scripty patterned paper (from my stash, brand unknown).
  • Mount to a card base folded down to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (aka A2).
  • Carefully apply 2 layers of Irresistibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer.

So glad I finally got around to creating a completed card with the image I had colored a year ago! It’s never too late! See you soon!

xo, Janette
