I'm killing two birds with one stone today...I made this card for the Papertrey Princesses challenge #4 and low and behold, it fills the requirements for Lisa Johnson's new set of "Poppy Seed Challenges". Michele challenged our blog group to color, and this new violets set is perfect. My coloring supplies and skills, however, are not. I finally caved and bought some Copic markers, but they are not here yet. So after using pastels, markers and finally Prisma pencils, on three different cards, this is my final answer. Prisma colors. I forgot how much I love to color. Why didn't I start this sooner?
Lisa's first challenge has three "seeds", and the rules aren't strict, but I managed to follow all of them. Flowers, crystals and light yellow. Go me! (Crystals are in the center of the purple flower.)
I actually really surprised myself, and I love how this card turned out. I love those outlines stamped in Smokey Shadow--they look like pencil drawings. My intent was to leave them all blank except the purple, but once I started coloring, I just couldn't stop. AAAAH!
