VC Rocks is a Virtual Convention - a celebration of all things Stampin' Up! You don't have to be a demonstrator to join, but you do have to participate. It's all fun! And a bit crazy at times. I won't name names. Mostly because one of those names would be mine. :o) We are only accepting new members through the end of May, so now is the time, ladies! Click here.
Now, on to my post. Our Hop theme this month is Color My World - using different coloring techniques.
For this project, I used our Many Marvelous Markers and Aqua Painters to color the lily.
I colored the flower with markers, using oranges on the edges and yellow in the center. I blended with the AquaPainter. Then I re-colored and blended some more until it looked like this. You need to use our watercolor paper for this technique, as it will be able to handle all the re-coloring and blending without pilling and disintegrating!
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers. Black Staz-On pad, Early Espresso Classic Pad
Paper: So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, and Natural Ivory card stock, Watercolor paper

I hope you've enjoyed my project! I'll have some Blog Candy for a random comment. How about some card stock quarters embossed with Manhattan Flower? You can even pick the colors.
Your next stop on the Hop is Stamper Shirley. I'm sure she'll have something Sassy for us!
Happy Hoppin' and Stampin'!
