Miss You

I thought I would do a simple colouring of this wonderful stamp that is from Annabelle's stamps (sorry no longer available). Not used enough, actually I hate to say but I think this is the first time I have used it. I have attempted to colour before but was not happy with the result and didn't keep it.

Anyway coloured with two copics for the blue and an aqua for the centre and leaves.

did the centres with Glossy Accents to give a nice finish. Played with a lot of ideas to finish the card off and ended up wanting to just stamp a small sentiment 'miss you'.  All lined up and ready to ink and didn't see the wee bit of fluff so we ended up with a little 'extra' something on the sentiment. 

I'm quite pleased with this for a CAS challenge just not sure if I needed to ground the stems. Did try a couple of ideas but wasn't happy so just left it.

Blue flowers and Missing you so feeling blue!

Thanks for visiting and hope you come again.

Sometimes it happens, Aileen. Last week I played with SSS Berkshire Border die for the first time, and it seems to be retired also :) Glad that you played with your NBUS stamps finally, very kind card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Addicted to CAS! - Sweet Kobylkin

Beautiful Copic coloring and CAS design, Aileen! I think your blooms look really great not being grounded, too! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!

Lovely colouring. I have some Annabelles that must be shown some more love too.
