Flower Pail - 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
I've been enjoying this very warm day but managed to get some coloring in and a card put together before it got too late in the day!  It's going to be a busy Saturday with a ministry breakfast in the morning, Addy's skating party in the afternoon and then getting ready for Sunday services in the evening!  Jake and Addy are here today and I had to put my foot down with the Lego video game and get them outside to play. Mimi (my daughter Amy) is on her way over to play a little homerun derby with them with the wiffle ball & bat, that's a throw back from when my 3 kids were all still living at home! Our backyard was THE place to be when they were growing up.

 In the meantime, here is my card that I will be linking at the 30 Day Coloring challenge blog.

This was a lot of coloring as a matter of fact it took me two days to finish.  I thought I might use this stamp to try the no line coloring... guess again! I got about halfway through and decided I needed a much simpler image to begin with.  Mercy!  I gave that half colored image to 6 year old Addy so that she could finish it for me, which she did quite nicely!  
So I used a lot of Copics to color this baby and I took advantage of the Hex Chart from Sandy Allnock, it was extremely helpful to pick out colors and they blended so well! And I experimented with a lot of them on this card.  Thank you, Sandy!  I'm learning not to be afraid of those darker colors to give more and better contrast :-)
