Copics Colour Challenge # 9

Yay! Now that I have my Copic pens I can play in another challenge, Copics Colour. This week we've been asked to use R59 Cardinal, YR07 Cadmium Orange and G99 Olive. A while back I bought a couple of Flower Fairies stamp sets and so decided to ink up this little beauty from the Zinnia range. As well as loving the pretty fairies, I thought all the floral accessories you get in the set would be really useful too!

I thought I'd create a floral border as this card is all about flowers, so I used a set of See D's Morsels (these create a similar effect to the Tapestry Stamps I've used before). I acually think these colours work really well together and will be using the combo again.

Image - Crafters Companion
Sentiment - Dovecraft
Stamped Flowers - Crafters Companion
Border - See D's Morsels
Colouring - Copics

I have received 2 awards from Cheryl at Garden of Handmade Love and I'm truly grateful for these, thank you so much.

Also, the lovely Ruth at A Passion for Cards has kindly passed this award on to me. Thank you for thinking of me, it's a lovely gesture and one that I really appreciate.

I'm off to make a start on my card for Just Magnolia now. This is their first week and there is a fab skecth to follow plus the most amazing prize...... you best check it out, I'm sure you'll be mega impressed!!
