I'm hanging out with the Power Poppy girls today - I've had to temporarily step back from my routine feature on their blog with all we have going on, but it so happened that I had a card made with the new Dancing with Daffodils digital set... and that's the feature today!
I so love these girls and it's fun to be hopping with them today. And daffodils are among my favorite flowers - so cheery! I loved the wild ones that popped up all over in the spring when we lived in Missouri.
This card was actually an experiment with Chameleon Markers - I wanted to try a little blending of mixed colors, instead of single-color areas. I've had a lot of fun with this marker set, and I'll share more about them soon. On the daffodils I laid down a solid yellow color base (YL2), then did a gradient blend with the Warm Sunset (YO3). On the smaller flowers, I did a gradient blend from one end of each petal with the Sky Blue (BL3) then started from the other end with Deep Violet (VO4). The leaves were done in a similar way. I used rubbing alcohol in a waterbrush to paint with the marker ink through drywall tape in a few areas to soften the background.
My card fits this week's Mix-Ability spring theme as well! Be sure to visit my friends below to see more spring beauties!
