Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #111 Petaloo Color Me Crazy Flowers!

It is Tuesday again and that means that it is time for my Midnight Madness Design card or project.  Today I have both for you.  I used Priscilla's digital for this beautiful card,"Bird Cluster Stamp" I made a matching gift jar complete with chocolates.  The design team got to play with coloring petaloo "Color me crazy" flowers.  I used several techniques for coloring my wonderful flowers.(More techniques to come on the upcoming weeks)  One of my favorite techniques is simply coloring them with my copic markers.  It is soooo easy to get everything to match.  These wonderful flowers absorb the ink beautifully.  I do color my flowers with the broad tip on my copics as the ink is more evenly absorbed.  My roses on my card were opened up some and then colored as I like them more open than as a bud.  These flowers are sooooo easy to be creative with.  For my jar, I just simply layered my colored flowers and then topped them off with a bird jeweled piece.  (I used fabric tac adhesive as it holds really well)  My cardstocks were by bazzill and mindseye.  My lace was from my stash!
We are so very happy to announce today that we have two New DT members joining the Midnight Madness DT.. Please help me in welcoming......
