Birthday Shellfish and the 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 25

IMG_9725


This is for Day 25 of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.com!




More Lawn Fawn goodness today as I am using the newly released Year Six stamps and die. I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to colour this sweet little set, any oyster I have ever seen has been grey and white. So I ended up creating 6 of them. One I stamped on a previously watercoloured panel, three more were coloured with Copic markers and the last two were watercoloured with my ZIG Clean Color Brush Markers.

I sponged Salty Ocean Distress Ink onto a wonky stitched square frame and splattered a bit of water on it for effect. There is a bit of Wink of Stella on the shellfish. The other 5 will go into my leftover dish for another time.

The wink close up...funny I can capture the shimmer with my iPhone not with my Canon Rebel.

I am also submitting this to this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes!

This is so adorable, Tracey! I need to get some of those wonky stitched dies, I love them every time I see them used and I have none!

This is spot on!! A little coloring can do so much, right? Love your soft water-coloring, Tracey! Hope you are staying warm and cozy on this very wintery day (yeah, hurry up, spring!!)! Warm hugs!

So adorable! Love that you made this a square card ... it really fits your design. And I too get frustrated with expensive cameras not taking a great photo (compared with my point and shoot) all the time. I think I may need a new lens.

Lindsey said...

Funny, I pull out my phone to get shimmer close-ups, too! This is an adorable card! You're right, colouring an oyster is a bit of a challenge... good we don't have to be too realistic. ;)

What a sweet card, I love the shape - squares are fun when your subjects are curvy. That frame is fabulous too.
