Color Wheel Flower Featuring Mini Spirograph Turnabout

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a little sneak peek of this card a couple of days ago. I colored this image for day 3 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I’m calling it a color wheel flower.

I started by creating the “color wheel” using the Mini Spirograph Turnabout™ stamp set from Concord & 9th. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using the Turnabout Jig in my MISTI.

After letting the ink dry for a few minutes, I colored in the “petals” using a rainbow assortment of Copic markers. I didn’t do any shading, so each petal was just a single color of marker. For the solid outline petals, I used a bright vibrant shade. For the dotted outline petals, I used a color that would be a pastel shade of the color created by combining the two vibrant petals on either side of it.

After I finished the coloring, I added a sentiment from the Crafty Notes stamp set by Gina K. Designs below the color wheel flower. I stamped it using VersaFine Onyx Black ink for a nice crisp black. I then used the largest rectangle from the Mini Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die-namics from My Favorite Things to die cut the focal panel using my Platinum 6 die cutting machine from Spellbinders.

To assemble the card, I created a top-folding card base using white cardstock. To that, I adhered a piece of blue patterned paper from the Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pack from Lawn Fawn. I then adhered the die cut focal panel to the card using some foam tape. For a bit of embellishment, I went over all the vibrant petals with a clear Wink of Stella pen then added a green flat-back pearl from 28 Lilac Lane to the center of the flower.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed the project I’ve shared. Until next time …
