I was inspired by the design that Sharon used on this card for her Hero Arts Dogwood stamp, I just had to give it a go as I have a digital stamp I won from Joy's blog some time ago, the stamp is from Tiffany Doodles.

Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers
Stamps: Tiffany Doodles; PTI (Tiny Tags)
Other: Jute; Tiny Tags Die (PTI)

Nothing to explain really.  Quite a bit of intricate colouring to get into small places without making a mess and colouring outside the lines.  I found that the best way is to turn my stamped image as I go instead of trying to move my hand into all sorts of weird angles to colour.

Just kept this one plain and simple.  I think I just needed to sit and colour, some kind of therapy!

Thank you for looking!

Beautiful coloring on this dogwood, Brenda! I must agree with you that I enjoyed coloring too as it brings me back to the school life!

I agree, Brenda. . . .coloring (and also cutting for me) is the perfect therapy for all sorts of things. I found out recently that it helps calm me down and relaxes me, when I've had a particularly difficult day. Love your gorgeous dogwood. . .colored so beautifully!

Oh my goodness, Brenda, I won that same digi from Karen Baker's blog and haven't used it. I love this card so I guess I better use mine. ;)
