Lacy Sunshine inspiration

It is my turn to showcase one of Heather's beautiful images at Lacy Sunshine Stamps
Here is just the coloring
My background is done with chalk to make a portrait appearance
Here  is my color recipe

I made an easel card using DSP from SU, flowers from Hobby Lobby, and the leaves are sequins.

Coloring Without Boundaries Shading a Rose

I love to shade Roses and this is the perfect stamp to use 
Breena Melancholy Moppet at Lacy Sunshine Stamps
Start by lying down your lightest color RV11
Start shading! Roses are never the same color all the way through
The center is always darker Start adding darker colors R37, R27 Try to color a small section at a time
The colors blend better when they are still wet,
Add darker color under the folds of the rose
A rose is darker at the base and gets lighter at the ends
 Now start coloring the outer petals one at a time because they are bigger and you need to leave more of the light color
Leave your lighter color where you want the petal to cup
 See, that petal looks like it is cupping
 I want the last petal to look like it is cupping downward so leave the light color where you want it to fold down
 See how it looks like it folds down
I hope you try shading a rose and Always FOLLOW YOUR ARTIST
HEATHER VALENTIN'S stamps are  high quality and the lines always connect!

Here is my color recipe
I enhanced her skin with prisma and the polka dots are a molotow marker

Holley's Bookmark challenge

Holley's challenge is to make a bookmark
 so with the help of Sandra Caldwell's 'Bearly A Headache' stamp I made a corner bookmark
Tried to keep it one layer so it would allow the page to be flat but I had to add something

It slips over the corner of your page to mark where you left off

That's the back! LOL!
Here's the front

Colored it with some markers that Hobby Lobby is trying, they are alright but they don't blend like copics or blendabilities
