PaperTreyInk Make it Monday #10

The Make It Monday challenge for this week is Masking with Dies.  The intention of this was probably to use stamp ink to color the image.  However, when i was coloring my image, I didn't have in mind any particular ink color.  I just picked colors I liked. Of course when I was done, I had no ink to match.  I decided to use the die mask and color it in using my Copics.  My die mask came from the top die from Banner Borders.  I used the negative to create the large circles and the center of the positive image for the smaller circles.

The image I used today is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I've had this image for a number of months and am finally using it.  I think it is a beautiful image.  It brings back memories.  I colored it using Copics.

There is no sentiment because I don't have one that i felt worked.  If you have any sentiment suggestions, please let me know.
Since I was in the coloring mood and love the image, I also did a second card.  Although, this one does not fit the challenge.  Again...no sentiment.  Leave a comment if you have a sentiment suggestion.

  1. What a fabulous image Carla, I can see why you like it so much. I love your skilled shading on the image. With regard to sentiments 'in full bloom' comes to mind or 'life is busting out all over' lol

  2. Beautiful job Carla! That image is gorgeous.

  3. Wow, this is truly impressive! I love the colors and the way you made the background in the first card! It's a beauty! It's pretty without a sentiment, the image does all the talking!
