Springtime Lily Card From An Adult Coloring Page

Phew…I haven’t been so happy to see a Friday in a long time!  Pardon my absence, but I was hunkered down in the craft room this week trying to meet all of my design team deadlines (three tutorials and 8 HSN 24-hour Craft Day samples).  The good news is that I’ll have tons to share in the coming weeks!  But for today, I’ll just share a quick card I made from one of my Spectrum Noir Colorista pages.

Inspired by Kathy Racoosin‘s latest 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I colored this lily image up fairly quickly one night (I didn’t have much time to spare!) with my Colorista markers.  With lilies there are so many options for color schemes, so I asked my good friend Google for some help and settled on emulating the coloring of a Trogon Lily.

When I was finished coloring, I loved how vibrant it came out so I decided to make the page into a card to help brighten someone else’s day.  A black mat, strip of organza ribbon, and simple die-cut sentiment was all I dared to add to such an eye-catching image before adhering it to a heavyweight cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by today and I’d love to hear your comments!  Stay tuned this month for more step-by-step tutorials and a few freebies as well!
