Have been playing with this floral image from SU’s “Bloom With Hope” set.


What a fun image to color!  I tried coloring it with pastels, but for whatever reason the more intense colors looked better to me.


I added some black marker to this second flower to give it even more contrast.


The first card is entered into one challenge:
