The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge INSTAGRAM HOP

Hello! I'm so excited to be a part of the mega Bloghop with other coloring enthusiasts:)) So much can be learned with this challenge, I encourage you to participate yourself..or just enjoy all the beautiful coloring being shared:)
Welcome to Day 3 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Today I am part of a THREE DAY blog hop to jumpstart your creativity. If your new to the coloring challenge or have any questions about the coloring challenge you can refer to this post and see Kathy’s getting started video here. Today’s blog hop features bloggers and Instagramers. (Kathy didn’t want to leave anyone out)
If you are coming from Pattie Leon @pattikleon on IG, you are in the right place.
For my card today I started out with A Bloom and Three Buds Stencil from STAMPlorations...the other is Peony #1, Stenciled on Neenah Solar White CS. I'll color one for today and save the other for later. I like to stencil in Yellow dye ink when coloring in the helps me keep a nice bright highlight wherever I decide to put it.Coloring with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, ie.ZIGGYs...Bright Yellow, Mid Green and Pale Green
I simply feather in some color leaving the stenciled yellow showing where the main highlights are going to be.Then I continue adding darker layers of color.A Really COOL accident happened when adding shadows with the BLUSH ziggy..I was smooshing the brush on the edges of a petal and realized it created a 'FOLD' or lip giving the petal more dimension. I really liked the effect.
Ran the panel through the Bigshot with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies added the sentiment from Fond Expressions 2. and a few sequins from PPP.

I used an INKTENSE watercolor pencil and just a hint of water for the watery background. Otherwise the ziggys are used without water.
