Another card using Yana's no blend alcohol marker coloring.  This is such a fun way to color and for my card today I even took the plunge and colored the background in black - was so afraid I'd mess it up.  Used a fine tip marker to outline all the flowers and then just filled in the space.

Before coloring I used my black frame and marked a light pencil line where I needed to color.  I colored the nasturiums with Altenew warm sunshine, caramel toffee and paper bag.  The leaves were done with Copics YG01, YG63 and YG95.  I used the HA rectangle die to make my frame and also to cut out the white layer.  Mounted it all on a black base.  Added the little sentiment embossed in gold along with some gold sequins and black glaze dots in the centers of the flower.

I am entering my card at Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge and also Virginia's Show & Share.

Tomorrow begins a new fun challenge at A Blog Named Hero along with prized for the winners - so be sure to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by.
