Make It Crafty April Coloring Challenge: Dew Drops

Hello!  I am here to share my Make It Crafty design team inspiration for this month's coloring challenge!  Zoe likes to really push us out of our comfort zones and encourage us to try new things.  Well, this month she absolutely succeed in giving me crafty anxiety!  Dew drops are the theme!  I have never before attempted this technique so what you're seeing is my first attempt.  Ok, well, not VERY first.  Two previous attempts with two different images ended up in the bin.  But I persevered and I am glad I did.  Don't give up!  Once you get a few under your belt, it really is an easy technique and adds a lovely detail to your image.

I ended up coloring this Peonies digital image.  I don't often color flowers so this project is a departure from my norm in several ways.  My coloring was done with Copics.  I followed some tutorials on how to create the dew drops.  (Zoe has included a couple on the challenge post to help you.)  I decided to make a Thank You card so colored up a Thanks single layered chipboard word sentiment.  I added a few La-La Land Crafts dies to my card as well.  Here I've used Scallop Border, Small Scallops Border, Lattice Doily Border, Heart Fan, Open Leaf Flourish, and Peacock Feather.

Hope you liked my crafty inspiration!  Join us over at the challenge for your chance to win one of three $5 gift vouchers for the MIC shop!  To be eligible you must use at least ONE Make It Crafty product on your project and follow the challenge theme.  All coloring mediums are welcome and your entry does not have to be a finished project.  Enter our Dew Drops coloring challenge HERE.
