Today we are featuring Theresa's new set called Elegant Florals 2.  There are so many lovely images in this set, I didn't know which one to pick up first!



To begin coloring with my Spectrum Noir Markers, I started with the stem using LG2, LG4 and LG5.  I began with the LG5 and added it just along the left edge, then added LG4 and used LG2 to blend them together.



Next, I used a grouping of coral colors in the CR color family for the flowers.  I started with the flower buds and used a CR4 marker along the base and outside edge.

Next I added CR3 marker and kept going over the bud until it blended as I liked it.


For a bit deeper color, I added just a touch of CR7 at the base and edge of each bud & then added more CR3 to soften and blend.


For the larger flowers, I selected more colors from the Coral (CR) color family.



I started with CR11 in the center of the flower.


Added CR8 working my way out from the center toward the edges of the petals.


Then I added CR7

And finally added CR7.  To pick up some of the darker corals, I used a blender pen in the middle of each petal to lighten up the look.  As you are coloring, don't be afraid to add more color and re-blend colors... sometimes it is trial and error until you get the look you like.


Here is the list of colors I used for my flowers.


I added some Stickles to the center of my flowers, but I like how the coral shades turned out.
