Day 13 and counting

Yikes - Day 13, not even halfway, on Kathy's (The Daily Marker) 30 Day Coloring Challenge! But I'm still coloring - yay! I colored Nasturtiums today and put them on a card already:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb;
DCWV A2 card; Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid - Spring; 
BoBunny Bold & Bright Double Dot
Stamps - Hero Arts CM263 Florals Nasturtium (with die) and 
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired);
Other - Copic Markers, black pencil; Michael's gems; foam tape

I searched the web for some Nasturtium images and used this one for my inspiration; there are so many beautiful colors out there! I tried to get the lines of red per their image but to no avail - guess I press too heavily on the marker tip.... For Copics I used 0, C00 & C1, E50, G20 & YG05, RV69, Y08, Y11, Y19 & YR12.

Next up -  I turned yesterday's coloring into cards - will share the poinsettia at Die Cut Divas Christmas in July for my 4th of 4 and the Santa at Christmas Kickstart Hatty Christmas. Sorry - I only took one photo....

Supplies - Paper - Hero Arts pine card (retired); TH Watercolor paper; 
BoBunny Yuletide Carol 6x6 (patterned)
Stamps - Hero Arts Peace Poinsettia & Holiday Sayings (both retired); 
Art Impressions  Holiday Wishes (also retired)
Dies - My Favorite Things retired Blueprints;
HoneyBee A2 Thin Frames courtesy of Betty
Other - Yasutomo watercolors, black & brown pencil; foam tape

Betty (created by bjk) sent me a bunch of panels of Honey Bees A2 Thin Frames - I don't own this die myself but all those thin frame dies look amazing!! Anyway, when Betty saw Santa she thought he'd look good framed. Well, my reindeer was just a bit too far away, nothing looked right. But I decided the poinsettias could be framed perfectly. Thanks again Betty!!!

That's it for Day 13. Thanks for stopping by - hope you have a great week!!
