Celebration Day 1

I am so excited to bring to you all this week six talented artists work to celebrate my 200th Digital Two for Tuesday posting.  I hope you will join our artists and create a project using an image from the site.  Please share you project in the comments section.  So we can all enjoy it.  Today my guest artist is the wonderfully creative Leslie Miller.  Her work is so amazing that I often don't recognize the image.  Often she takes an image like the one below (that I almost did not post because it is not a true line image) and creates a totally beautiful work of art.  Thank you Leslie for sharing your work with us.

Here is Leslie's bio and description of her project in her own words.

"I'm a happy stamper living on the southern Oregon coast with my husband, Rich, and two Golden Retrievers, Wally and LuLu.  Enduring passions (other than family, furry and human) are gardening, reading and papercrafting, and I indulge as much as possible when not at my day job in a medical laboratory.  I love all styles of stamping, but most of all coloring, and that's why I so enjoy the images Cora shares on Digital Two for Tuesday.  My stamping blog is Running With Scissors... and I share my other life on Goldens and Garden.

 I was hardly prepared for how difficult it would be to decide which image to select from among all the gorgeous, sweet, whimsical, masculine, feminine, you name it choices over here. I settled on this big, bold petunia, loving as I do the sketchy-style illustration which produces a no-line image when colored.  The image is from an 1894 Burpee catalog. Flowers are timeless and they’re among my favorite finds at Digital Two for Tuesday. This particular image is here. Placed front and center on my 5 1/4” square card, I popped up every other layer and colored the edges of the die cut frames with a Copic V0000 marker.  This will be a Mother's Day card for a friend, complete with box in which to present it.  All the coloring was done with Copic markers and the image was printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.  Thank you!"

Here is the card in matching box.
