Altenew Color Therapy Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, I am delighted to be taking part in the Altenew Color Therapy Blog Hop today. We are all focusing on colouring with Altenew Artist Markers. As you may know, I love colouring. I also suffer with some health conditions and I find that it really is a form of therapy for me.
 

My card uses the beautiful Fresh Freesia set. I started off by stamping the image on to a panel of white cardstock with Fog ink. I wanted a light ink for a no-line look. Using the Altenew Artist Markers Set A (I used just the blues and greens from the set), I coloured the image in, adding the darker colour first and blending out with the lighter. I only used two shades for each section (the exact colours are listed below the supplies section).
 
 
I took a bit of artistic licence with using blues for the petals, but I just love blue flowers, even if most of them only exist in my imagination! The sentiment from the set was stamped using black ink and then the panel was added to an A2 white card base with foam sheet and DST. To finish off, I added a few sequins around the image.
