Designed 2 Delight - Happiness Blooms image

This week Faith at Designed 2 Delight has given us (those of us who played along last week, that is) another free image for the Friday Free Image Challenge.  It's called Happiness Blooms

The patterned papers are from The Paper Loft, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  Currently I'm enrolled in an online class to learn how to use Copic markers, but I'm waiting for my order of markers that should be here on Tuesday so I'm limited to the colors you see on this card right now.  Don't critique my coloring yet...I don't have enough colors nor have I practiced enough yet.  Below the card you can see my first attempt at learning how to shade an image using pencil.  Hopefully over the weeks and months to come, you'll be able to see some improvement in my technique!


  1. Allison- love your colored flower. Just saw your video response on OWH tv...very cool trying something for the first time and posting :)

  2. I'm impressed! I'd never have know you had limited colors AND I think you have shaded the vase wonderfully well. Thanks so much for using Happiness Blooms by Designed2Delight and entering our challenge. We enjoy seeing your work!

  3. Looks great to me. You will really enjoy the online copic classes they are a wealth of knowledge. Thanks so much for joining us at D2D this week.
