Friends are Flowers


I received this duo set in the mail just a few days ago, and couldn’t wait to try it!

The stamp is Friends are Flowers, from Gina K Designs.

The yellow cardstock was a scrap I had put aside.  I’d embossed it with Swiss Dots months ago, but decided it wasn’t suitable for the card I was making at the time, so added it to my ‘scrap’ box.  I think it’s perfect for this card.

I stamped the flower image in Memento Black, then coloured it with Copics.  This is only my second card using Copics.  I purchased my first six Copic markers yesterday, and had my first ‘play’ today. (I was itching to use them but didn’t have the time!)

I was very happy with the results of the first card, and also this card, particularly considering I’m a total novice at Copics colouring.  I used some orange grossgrain ribbon in my stash, and it matched the Copics colour perfectly.  I added some pearls to the ribbon and also the top corners (which I rounded with a punch), then aded it all to some brown cardstock.

I would have preferred black cardstock – to match the black ink – but would you believe I’m out of black cardstock?  Nope, I couldn’t either!

Okay, that’s it.  Pretty darned easy!

I’m entering this card into the Outlawz CAS challenge for this week.
