Miss You

It's time for the Reminder Post for The Flower Challenge

I've enjoyed doing this one. This time I have gone with Copics in the R range
using R00 to give myself the lightest area to work from then my main blends
being R81 R83 R85 and then for the stems R02 shadow R32.
The flower is a stamped image from 'The Ton' Magnificent  Magnolia's
and they are a wonderful collection of  floral stamps and sentiments.

In this instance I have used a die cut sentiment from 'Altenew' Miss you new to me and I love it as it was a perfect fit for this flower. I die cut the sentiment 5 times, the last time our of copic card stock, a scrap that I coloured with the same colours used for the flowers. I then added a touch of glitter which of course is lots more sparkly if you click on the image and enlarge and even more so IRL.

I attached at the bottom so it covered where the stems just ended as I hadn't really thought about what I was going to do, at first planing to die cut the flowers but changing my mind once coloured. I finished it off with those sparkly gems in the corner that I added some Copic R83 to just for a bit of pink sparkle.

Right, now it's time to go check out the amazing inspiration from my team mates over at The Flower Challenge. I was so inspired as I added my card to the main blog looking at their cards now I think maybe I should be trying black and white. What about you? Have you given it a go yet? 
Come on, join in the fun........ show us what you have!!!


The sentiment is cut all from snippets
as well as the copic layer.

Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
