A Day For Daisies Sleeping Flower July Club Kit Peacock Magic


I have three cards to share with you today using digital images from A Day For Daisies.  They have a challenge going on and the challenge is to make three projects using ADFD digital images.  I actually had two cards made up with A Day For Daisies images that were just kind of "waiting for the right challenge".

My first card uses the image Sleeping Flower, when I saw this and saw that it was a freebie I was so excited.  This image is colored with Copic markers R81, R83, R85, C0, C00, G0000, B0000, B000, B60, B21, B23, Y21, YR21, YR23 YG67, YG63, E00, E000 and I made the background for the Labels 14 with the Red Copic markers and the air brush system as well as Copic blending solution and a Hero Arts background stamp.


My next card uses digital images from A Day For Daisies July Club Kit.  If you haven't seen this kit you really should go check it out, the images are wonderful - you'll see!  

I've been practicing my cloud background with Copic markers again and really like the way this one turned out.  The Copic markers I used for this card are B0000, B000, C00, C0, YG63, YG61, G0000, YR00, E00, E000, R20, YR24, YR23, Y21, Y11, BV0000, BV000, BV01, B66.


My third card uses the A Day For Daisies Peacock Magic digital image.  The patterned paper is the same background technique I used on the first card.  I was working on coloring from one color family to another on this card and it worked out pretty well.  Here are the Copic marker colors I used for her dress YR68, YR65, YR61, Y13, Y11 and the other Copic colors are R20, E00, E000, E99, B60, W7, W5, W3.  The sentiment is digital from Scrap a licious Times and the cardstock colors I've used are Via Vellum Black, Neenah Solar White & Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie.

One more thing...
My reason for making the first card today is we have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!  The theme is "Miss You", I hope you'll play along with us this week too!
