Some fun news!

I am excited to share you my first card for this month as Flourishes' Guest DT for their Timeless Tuesday Challenge. I have been a BIG fan of Flourishes stamps and own quite a collection of their sets. Their gorgeous images allow me to practice on my Copic coloring skills. I just love them all! I will be joining the Timeless Tuesday team all month. The theme this week is Think Pink to celebrate the Breast Cancer Awareness month of October.

For today's card, I colored my Lenten Rose image with Copics as my focal point. I just love these delicate flowers. The sentiment is also from this set, which I die cut with Spellbinders' Classic Circle die. The papers are by Carta Bella. I stamped another image from the set with pink ink directly on the patterned paper. I like that effect as it allows you to create a coordinating pattern to go with your main stamped image.

Here you can see a close up of the rose with the different shading using Copics. I used the Copic Sketch Lenten Rose collection, plus R89 to create the darker contrast. the leaves were colored with various green markers. I adorned my card with lace, seam binding, paper rose and a strip of Want2Scrap Le Creme bling.
