Colour Me ... subtle!

Okay!  Here I am with a quick little post for the Colour Me! challenge ... this card was made in a pinch, in near darkness, without power ... yes, folks, without power!  Just came back on so I'm in luck!!!

Here is the lovely inspiration for CMCC#89:

 
Everyone knows by now that I haven't a feather ... so it is always an extra challenge to find a stand-in - this time?  Not a problem:
 
Technique Tuesday sentiment; Die-namics, and Lawn Fawn leaves;
favorite embossing folder - ever!!  Yes, Lindsey, they are on their way!
Copic coloring, with a little dabbing of colorless blender.
 
Hope you are all powered up, and having a great start to your week!  Thanks for stopping over!
 
=]  Michele

Love those brilliant leaves. Colored so beautifully, and they really stand out on that textured white.

TK Watson said...

Sheesh! No power and you can still make a GREAT card! Nice take on the feather colors...

Miriam Prantner said...

Those multicolored leaves are just wonderful, and then with the woodgrain texture, fantastic card!

Now THAT's dedication (or an addiction problem) lol to stamp and create in the dark! LOL And you knocked it out of the park too! And so creative with the "alternative" feathers! Girl, you've got it going on! Hugs!

Chriss Blagrave said...

Love how you worked those colours! The leaf is a great stand in for the feathers! :)

Kim Heggins said...

Michele ... of all your wonderful cards, I think this one is my current favourite ... that woodgrain background texture is just beautiful ... and oh my, those green and blue blended hues ... swooning, my friend! So pleased the power came back on!! Hugs, Anita :)

Maria Rodriguez said...

Just GORGEOUS Michele, the colors of this leaves against the pristine white of the background are striking!! Love how you die cut the leaves and then placed them back in their negative space, just lovely!!!
One question.....did you use vellum for the wood grain embossing? It's so crisp and beautiful and it doesn't appear to be cracked, like sometimes happens with vellum when you dry emboss it.
Being without electricity didn't matter at all Michele, you didn't need it, the Big Shot is powered by you!! and I'm sure you used a few candles or a flash light to do the rest of this lovely card.
Thank you for sharing.
Maria.

Marybeth said...

I might have to start working without power to get results like this! Gorgeous ,Michele!!!!!!!!!

Shannon McComb said...

Ohh this is beautiful;!!! I LOVE the colors of those leaves, just stunning, looks so very pretty on the woodgrain background!:

Shona Chambers said...

Well I think these leaves are a perfect replacement for leaves, they certainly are just as pretty with the way you coloured them. And gosh that woodgrain embossed background is gorgeous!

Sharron said...

I'm skipping around a bit now but I'm definitely looking at every post. Your cards are always an inspiration. Love your creative take on feathers! Are those the Lawn Fawn small leaves? And who makes your very favorite woodgrain embossing folder--truly gorgeous?

cm said...

The brightest of light wouldn't see me EVER making a card this lovely and inventive, Michele! Love those colourful leaves against the white; again, the contrast enhances the impact immensely. In awe...
