Whimsical Flowers for my Friend

by Marika

Hello! It is Marika here and I would like to wish you all Happy New Year!

Firstly, I did a special post before Christmas and asked if one of you would like to receive a card from me. I was so surprised by the response, it was so wonderful, thank you all! You gave me such a warm Christmas gift.

I randomly chose the recipient with a help of random number generator. Random number given to me was the number of 55, and the 55th commenter was DIANE HANSON. Diane has so kindly accepted my request to receive some happy mail from me, I'll deliver it to the post office first thing tomorrow! Thank you, Diane! Hopefully you'll like it and it gives you a smile!

For about a year ago, I got an honour to Guest Design on the Altenew blog for the first time and on the second post I made this card HERE with Whimsical Flowers. When I started to make videos, I was asked to made that into a video. I finally got it to work, I hope you find it still helpful although it is a year late.

Products used: Whimsical Flowers and co-ordinating die, Birch Land Stamp set and Shutter Cover Die.

So this is my first video after the three months long break, I was a bit rusty while filming and editing, so please bear with me. You can watch my tutorial here or in HD in Youtube. Hopefully you find it helpful.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have an amazing day!

Hugs,

Marika

Oh Marika, I’m so very happy you shared this amazing video, I remember when we asked you to show us how you create this amazing cards and how you color your images so wonderfully.
As of now, I still haven’t purchased the Polychromos, I’m just waiting a little bit until my little piggy bank I have in my craft room, where I put money aside for my craft supplies, gets a little chubbier, LOL!!
I’m so happy this set has a coordinating die, it makes it so much easier to cut this gorgeous blooms.
As always, I sit here, in total awe watching your color, I love the detail on this flowers that you achieved with the pencils without blending it, just so lovely.
Thank you so much for sharing with us your coloring talents.
Hugs and I wish for you Joy and Health for 2016!!!!!

Maria.

Truly appreciate this videos. Marika’s coloring is the best I’ve seen yet, especially on flowers. In addition, her sense of style and proportion is outstanding.

Marika, any day I can watch you color is a good day for me! You always make me feel like I will someday be able to create beautiful images. I had made the decision to upgrade my color pencils before Christmas and was trying to figure out which ones to buy. Your video was very helpful in that respect. Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us who want to color just like you do when we grow up! Blessings to you.
