Power Poppy ~ Geraniums ~
This is the first year in a very long time that I have flowers. Let me clarify... I have honest to goodness annuals this year... My perennials have been perking right along the entire time! :-) Certain health issues have prevented me from enjoying lovely blossoms outside my home. This year I have real geraniums... not artificial ones stuck in a basket to make me feel better about myself... lol...
**Anyone else here know what I'm talking about?**
So when I saw this digi from Power Poppy I took the leap. I haven't had a great deal of success in the past coloring digis, even after all of the cajoling, standing on one head and holding aluminum foil in one hand... Ok... Maybe I am confusing coloring digis with the TV antennae of yesteryear... :-)
I am happy to report that this time, my results were much more favorable. I printed my image on Copic compatible paper (Gina K. Designs to be exact) and sprayed the image with Krylon Matte Finish. I let it cure for a few days and went to work. The texture was a tad bit more "rough" but it colored nicely and did not bleed... WHEW! All in all, I am pretty tickled with it... What do you think?
