Year of Flowers....Violet
Can you tell I love Papertrey's Year of Flowers? I'm a little behind with this one, the Violet. I actually didn't realize I wanted the whole series of stamps until the Sweet Pea and Daffodil stamp sets came out. Once I got those, I said to myself might as well get the whole YOF sets. They're just going to get more and more beautiful, lol!
I colored the Violet with Copics, which wasn't really that easy, to be perfectly honest. Lots of large open areas to color in and blend smoothly. Takes a looooong time. I used some pretty Memory Box papers with lovely blue-violet, lavender and spring greens. The blue-violet reminds me of the color of my favorite kind of hydrangeas. I love that particular color so much, but have a really, really hard time recreating it with any sort of media. It's a cross between lavender and blue-violet that I have no name for, but just takes my breath away when I see it. Oh well, I'll keep trying till I get it!
Hope you like it, thanks for visiting my little world!
