Peonies in Corals~Get Sketchy Challenge!!

I have been so enjoying the challenges at Power Poppy stamps! This Friday is a sketch challenge! What a pretty sketch to feature these peonies...the delicate lines and fun details! I resized the Peonies digital for the floral image. 
Here is my card recipe:
Stamps: Power Poppy Digital Peonies
Paper: PTI Kraft, SU! Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral , SU! DSP (retired)
Dies: Spellbinders , Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Doilies
Copics for Coloring
Accessories: Lace by May Arts, striped coral by SU! (retired)
2 Kaiser Sparklets

I have been trying something new to me: when coloring an image, I am coloring two! This gives me an extra for later, and cuts down on my brain having to think too hard which color combinations work together. I am finding it easier to be inspired and keep the copics coloring while they are still out on my desk. It also makes cards come together faster if I already have a colored image.
Thanks to Power Poppy for the fun challenge. The challenge goes through the end of this month, so you still have lots of time to join in!
Thanks for stopping by!

  4. These peonies of yours are some of the most beautiful I've seen yet! The color is gorgeous and your execution of the coloring is outstanding. Great use of the sketch, too. I love coral. I still have some of the old SU! coral -- Cameo Coral? I need to use up some of those old colors. I like your idea of coloring multiples.
