I love cute quaint little stamps and I REALLY enjoyed coloring this one!
Apple Bough Inn. I colored the image with my Copic markers.
I used so many markers I really didn't want to list them all! I get carried away sometimes lol. I know I used R81, R83 and R85 on the flowers. I used a lot of different shades of green and brown for the tree and leaves and then the sky was a large variety of the BG's and a little tiny bit of R01 to give it a pink hue in the lighter spots.
After I got my stamp colored and matted, it was applied to the card using pop dots. The sentiment stamp used, is a quote from Frida Kahlo called Wings to Fly, This stamp is also available from Technique Junkies.
The card seemed a little too bright so I rubbed Tim Holtz distress ink on the edges of the card in Tea Dye and a little on the colored image as well to give the overall card an "antique" feel.
I hope this card inspires you to get out your markers or pencils and color a while today.
Have a fantastic day!
