Hello Friends! Welcome to Day 2 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Okay. Now that we've taken care of all of the business, let's get to the crafty bits...

I wanted to color something Autumn related, so I chose this sweet digi stamp from Power Poppy called, Maize for Days.   Please click on the pictures to enlarge them.


I printed the image onto smooth white card stock. Once in dark brown and then again in light gray. I colored the main image with Polychromos colored pencils and blended them with a Derwent blending pencil. I didn't blend all of it, just certain areas because I really like the texture I get from colored pencils. After I finished coloring, I die cut and embossed the image using an oval Nestie and while the image was still in the die, I brushed on some Antique Linen Distress ink. I did the same thing with the sentiment piece. I matted the focal panel with a scalloped oval and mounted it onto my card base with foam tape. Next, I gave the corn husks and the bittersweet berries a coating of Clear Spectrum Sparkle. And I added Crystal Effects to the berries for more shine and a little dimension.



For the inside of the card, I used the light gray image onto which I printed a sentiment from another Power Poppy digi stamp set called, Gladioli. I re-colored it brown so it would coordinate better with my color palette.  And again, I brushed on a little ink while the image was still in the die. By the way, if you need instruction on how to work with digital images, there is a wonderful tutorial you can take a look at HERE



And that, my friends, is all I have to share with you today!

Now it’s time to hop to my friend Sarah Jay.

Oh my gosh, I can almost eat the corn off of the cob on your card! That corn looks so real and corn and your card use my favorite color, yellow. People don't use enough yellow in their cards and I think their should be yellow in everyone's cards somewhere. I love corn and I grew colored popcorn in my garden one year. It was so cool and it looked like your card. This is so fall looking and I love it!
