I fancied doing some Copic colouring today and created this card:
I started by stamping this oldie but goodie stamp from Clearly Besotted. I then chose some Copics to create different coloured tulips, and die cut with the matching die. Clearly Besotted don’t do matching dies any more, and my Scan-n-cut comes into play with the newer stamp sets.
The patterned paper was a freebie with their current and new release – yep, I ordered it all!! – and I thought was a perfect background layer for these flowers.
I wanted a vase for the flowers, so turned to the Honey Bee die set I have, and used vellum……which doesn’t really show up very much, so I outlined it in white.
To get the ribbon on the bunch of flowers to come out of the top of the vase, I had to snip a little – but I think it works.
I then used my Xyron for the vellum – a handy tip from Daniel West on one of his classes – then stuck this down, and added 3D foam under the bouquet itself.
The dots are from a previous Crop and Create event from Doodlebug, and the sentiment is from the same Clearly Besotted stamp set.
