Happy Birthday Vicki

Birthday Blog Hop For Vicki 
I chose one of Vicki's beautiful cards as her Birthday Hop Logo. 
Today a few of us local crafty gals are honoring Vicki on her birthday with a blog hop.
I have had the pleasure of meeting the person behind these extraordinary color creations.  Vicki always blows me away with her use of color.
Mwah to you Vicki enjoy your birthday and our hop in your honor. 

The First inspiration for my card:
the way Vicki achieves such vibrant color on all her creations.   In my effort to achieve such color I tried mixing up colors in my flowers. I achieved this color on my peonies using yellows, orange and pinks then shading with a gray.
Copics I used:
peonies  = Y21, YR23, YR02, RV23, RV25, C5
leaves = YG21, YG23, YG25, C5
background = BG000, 0

The Second inspiration for my card:
 Tracy McNeely's card for this week's Muse Challenge #166.
However I positioned my flowers from the gorgeous digi, Peony Love by Power Poppy,  in opposite corners and my sentiment in the center.

The Third inspiration for my card was:
 Power Poppy's 

Please hop along with us and wish Vicki a happy Birthday. 
Lisa (that's me)
Vicki (wish her a happy bday)

Most Awesome Mom

For My Mom
I am so glad I went to the Power Poppy blog Friday looking for an image for Mother's Day. 
Oh and this brand new digital image Peony Love fit the bill perfectly!  I made a 5x5 card. I think this is the most detailed image I have ever colored. It was a joyful challenge. My Mom loves flowers. So I think she'll love this. Thank you Marcella.  This card is also for this week's CAS Challenge on Splitcoaststampers CAS376 For A Special Lady

I colored my flowers using Copics.  
I colored with the lightest color first leaving white space then added layers to give the deep colors and shading. 
Orange=YR02, YR04
Pink=R20, R22
Green=YG21, YG23
Blue=B00, B01
Purple=V01, V04
Deep Shading=C3,C5

I am playing in this month's Power Poppy
