Bloom where you are planted.

Hello for the second time today - just sneaking in under the wire with my entry for the Saturated Canary  challenge which ends in just a couple of hours!!  Phew, only just made it!

I decided to print this digi in a light grey and aim for a watercolour/washed out kind of look with the colouring as well - nothing to do with the fact that a lot of my Copics are running low on ink and I need to get some refills!!!



I actually do like the end result as it's much softer than I would have imagined  - I tend to have a heavy hand with Copics and long to achieve that wonderful distressed look so many of you manage to do (effortlessly it seems to me!).


I would also like to put this in for the following challenges -

Many thanks for popping in :)

Your soft coloring creates an almost dreamlike effect, which works so well with that image.

Great design. I especially love the jewel flourishes.

Love the soft feel of the card. Your going to think I am crazy and for a senior citizen I guess I am. I love the way the flowers match her eyes and the gem flourishes repeat the pattern in her hair. Nice card. Thanks for playing along with the Oozak Challenge, hope you win!

The soft look is really pretty Dawn. I over ink most of the time usually from trying to blend. I think it's lovely. :-)
