Artsy Blooms

Out of the box with the artsy blooms.... I love the look of these flowers and the possibilities in color that they hold. Did you know that the panel the flowers are stamped on was just plain white card stock? All the coloring was done with my copics...even the shading around the flowers.
I wanted to show you a real close shot of these blooms. I wanted to show you how two very DIFFERENT colors can blend together with copics. I know I have shown you a lot of the same color tone blending (markers close in shade) but this is where I used the feathering technique and brought the yellow from one side to meet the pink from the other.
As a final touch I added some of the pink and red spica pens to the blooms. They really shimmer, just like they were wet from dew!

Here are all the card deets:
Rubber Stamps by Cornish Heritage Farms:
Artsy Blooms (Shady Tree), Friend Centers (MLM)
Tuxedo Black Memento Dye Ink (Tsukineko)
Fleuriste Patterned Paper (Cosmo Cricket)
Simply Smooth White (Prism)
Copic Markers
Red, Pink Spica glitter pens (Copic)

Butterfly Die (Spellbinders)
Pearl (Kaiser Craft)
Rub on Stitching (Daisy D)

Enjoy your day!

You think I could remember...lol! I think I used a very light YR or Y21 (I usually gravitate to those) in combo with R35.
I know I should write these things down!
