Technicolor Thursday!

Hello! Hello! Hello!
We have a lot up our sleeves so keep coming back everyday!
Before I go on, Summer has a post about the new releases.

This lovely stamped image is called Sunshine and Apples and she was colored with Copic Sketch markers. Butterflies are MS punch outs. Sky was sponged using post it notes and distress inks. White corner frames were embossed using CB folder and edges were inked with a gold pen. Added flowers for a romantic touch. This card is 5 1/2" x 7".

Ever since I have seen this image I have imagined her walking on a very summery garden. I do not have a garden scene stamp, so I drew and colored the scene with copic markers and tried to color it as sunny as I could. Did some doodling on her umbreall as well. Hopefully, this card will inspire you to create your own scene cards. There is no wrong or right way to do it - just use your imagination. :)
These stamps are wonderful to make scene cards with.
They are very sweet, nostalgic (to me anyway) and just plain gorgeous!!!

We love to hear your feedback or comments.
I would encourage you to comment daily - seriously, it'll be worth it! *wink*

My easy question is:
What is you favorite coloring medium
or what would you use to color these images?

Be sure to come back for tomorrow's new post. You don't want to miss it!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!


  1. OMG this is utterly amazing!
    I use polychromos so thats what i'd use to colour this gorgeous image :)

  2. OMG! This is stunning! Wonderful colouring. I use watercolours, so I would use watercolour pencils to colour these. :)

  3. OMGoodness - this is simply amazing!! You need to design some background stamps - your drawing is awesome!!!

    My fave medium is definitely Copics - just love 'em!

  4. Lil, this is SOOOOO Gorgeous!!! And you DREW THAT? WOW Girl!!!

  5. WOW this is amazing I thought it was a bk grnd new stamp then thought wow this is a an actual drawing very good and coloured SO LOVELY!

    Love Dawn xx

  6. Oh My! what an amazing artist! I love the little garden you gave this darling to wonder through. My favourite medium to colour Elisabeth's divine images is Polychormos pencils, but I have been trying out ProMarkers these last few weeks and even mixing the two on occasions!
    hugs, annie x

  7. OMG OMG about AMAZIN...INCREDIBLE...GORGEOUS!! I am in total awe! Beautiful beautiful job!

  8. This card is gorgeous!!!!

    I think it depends on the look I'm going for, but lately I've been reaching for my prismacolors.

  9. I am just loving this line of stamps. I would color her with my Lyras and Mineral Spirits as they tend to be a bit softer and she would look so delicate. How gorgeous is she.
    Hugs xx

  10. I was absolutely gobsmacked when I saw this!!! It is absolutely freaking GORGEOUS!!!! I color in copics too, it is my first reach. However I've been known to color in Prismas as well.

  11. Absolutely beautiful! Your coloring is amazing and this card is just so pretty.

    My favorite coloring medium is the Prismacolor color pencils. Love them and would be lost without them!

  12. I'm stunned! For me, this card is absolutely breathtaking! I took one look at it and my jaw dropped. I wouldn't even know where to start to describe how gorgeous it it and as you all know, I'm hardly ever at a loss for words. I'm just absolutely taken by it. This is the kind of work that I aspire to. It's just amazing.

  13. Oh, it's gorgeous!
    I've been addicted to my Copics lately! I tried going back to my water color pencils, but it was so foreign to me, I couldn't do it! LOL!
    TFS :*)

  15. Oh wow what a truely gorgeous card. Love all the colours used to create this card, the background really works well with the image.

  16. This is one if my FAVS that you've done too Lilian! I am in awe of how you color! I like to use Copics for such fine details like this :) I'd use the same color combo shown here. Such a beautiful Bell Stamp xox ~Jeni

  17. I don't think I'll ever be good enough to do a scene as beautiful as that Lol!!!!
    I've been a H20 girl but I'm branching out into distress inks at the moment.
    Keep the fantastic cards coming they are so beautiful and inspirational.
    Happy crafting

  18. WOW!!!!!!! I'm totally blown away!!!!! Lil's this is absolutely breathtaking!!! Can't believe that you DREW that fatastic background!!! Like Rosette I think you should think about designing background stamps! And your coloring is the most wonderful work I've seen so far done with Copics!!!! I can't stop looking at this fabulous card! And I don't know what else to say I'm just stunned!


  19. holy toledo, batman, this is stunning! I was looking for the name of the new stamp, too!

    I use inks and my watercolor brushes for all of my coloring. sometimes my markers, but not too often anymore. I just love the look of the watercolors. don't have any of the copics that are so popular. but that is okay, as I am perfectly content with what I do have! :)

  20. Oh how gorgeous and I can't believe you drew the scene in yourself it is wonderful.
    My favourite colouirng medium is Promarkers but this young lady looks like she could also look good watercoloured.
