Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

I often think…



Hello, I am here today to bring you my card for the next pair of color at Color Hues. It is our 5th challenge already…where does the time go?

The flower image I have for you today is a digi from Power Poppy. I have been wanting to print and color this blossom for quite some time but was waiting till I finally bought a laser printer to do so. Now, hubby and I are wondering why we didn’t do it eons ago. It prints like a dream and the ink doesn’t dry out!! My friend Barb got me interested in the images over at Power Poppy where she is a DT member.  If you haven’t checked out their site or her site you should. I have linked them both up for you.

After I was done coloring my Cherry Blossom with Copics I just wasn’t happy with the stark white background and decided to turn it into a tag.  That helped some, but not enough. So I decided to do the dot trick with Copics that you have seen me use before. Now I love it! I used some twine, sequins, and a fabulous sentiment from Stampin Up to finish it off. The fun DP is from Stampin Up too and I just love it!

Please come over to Color Hues and check out what the team and our guest JoAnn have done with the colors.  You won’t be disappointed, I guarantee it!

Take care, Nanc’

  1. The dot technique really outlines your pretty flowers beautifully, Nancy. The patterned paper works well with the flowers and each other. Wonderful card!

  2. I recognized this spray of Cherry Blossoms immediately! You have colored them perfectly and they look amazing I really like how you have them a “Pop” with the pointillism. I love that you went outside of the box with that color kraft. I am tickled that you now have a laser printer. Thanks, my friend for the mention of my blog.

  3. This is wonderful! I’ve never tried the dot technique, but it’s clearly something I need to put in my tool bag. Those flowers are gorgeous, and the tag just pops over the polka-dot background! Off to check out Poppy Power.

  4. Your card is so beautiful and I like the colors.

  5. Beautiful image and I love the dots, one gorgeous card!

  6. Beautiful card. Your blossom branch is colored so pretty and the addition of the “dot” technique makes it pop. The yellow/white polka dot background is perfect with it.

  7. Hi Nancy!
    Your card pops with color and the dots and texture add such a WOW factor! Such a gorgeous design and with a sweet sentiment too. Love it!

  8. Gorgeous flowers on the tag, Nancy!! The dots add the perfect touch!!

  9. Your dotting technique certainly works, it throws the blossom spray into full focus!
