Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #54!

Yes, I'm still on my flower kick...can't quite get enough!
There is something to be said for black, white and this, GREY and red. My favorite part of this card is the airbrushing of the grey (W3) copic marker around these pretty poppies. I kept my spellbinder die on my image and airbrushed it BEFORE taking my die off. This is how you get that pretty white edge without adding another layer of paper.
A close look at the new Spica pens from Copic. I used the lipstick and butter on the flower and the mint on the leaves. Just a pretty shimmer....
Here are all the card deets:

Such a beautiful card! I love this classic colour combo too. Your copic colouring on all of your cards is fantastic. I have not yet made the plunge into the copic arena, but teetering. Thanks for sharing all of your beautiful creations.
