Tiffany Doodles Challenge

Good morning, my friends! One more day until Friday... but who's counting; right? :)

Today we are taking a short break from our week inspired by Sally, so I can share with you my card for the April Tiffany Doodles challenge. This month's challenge is a color inspiration challenge using these colors:

I used the challenge colors as my guide when coloring my flower, but then I just had to make a bright background so the flowers would really "pop."


I colored the flower bouquet using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush markers and I added white shading and highlights with the Design Memory Craft white Pastell Pencil. The background began as white cardstock which was inked with Distress Ink (Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy, and Fired Brick). After Inking I flicked the background with water to create the water spots. (Flower by Tiffany Doodles and sentiment by Hero Arts)

More details on this card and this month's fun challenge can be found HERE.

Thanks for visiting and see you tomorrow with our last card inspired by Sally. HUGS!

Absolutely stunning!! I would love it if sometime you could show us how you do this in a video or step by step. I try the flicking of the water but it never looks like this and I sure don't know how or where to put the white when you use the colored pencil... Any help would be awesome! Thanks! Have a great week.
hugs,jen
