Friends and Fuschsia

And Black and Yellow.  Time for another Friends of Speedy TV challenge and this time it is a color challenge.  It just so happens that I had a hand in these colors.  As luck would have it, Mark's Finest Papers just released a great set called Hum Along with a beautiful hibiscus.  This new set played right into my colors.  I had to try a pointillism technique I had seen done with Copic markers.  My work did not turn out as the sample shown by the tutorial writer, but I do like the effect.  Perhaps I need to use darker colors to get the pointillism effect.
 
I played along with a few of the Love Fest challenges at Splitcoaststampers.  This is the sketch that was offered up by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I'll be linking it up over at Splitcoaststampers later today!
 
Hey, let's not forget that Mark's Finest Papers offers a free stamp set for one randomly drawn winner of the challenge.  So make sure you play so that you have a chance to win.  Enjoy The View is the set being offered this week. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
