It's Friday!

My mom and dad came to visit us last week, and my mom and I love to sit and work on cards together. Whenever I show her something new, like my nestabilites, she and I talk about how there is always something new (or at least new to us) that would be fun to buy. Well, I got something new! I wasn't going to do it because coloring/shading/blending is not really my strong suit. But I bought 5 copic markers to try. I have a few stamps that I wanted a good skin color for and haven't been able to find a watercolor or anything else that I really liked. So I was looking on ebay and found a "skin color" copic and decided to give it a whirl. In the lady's store, she had a few other colors that I thought would be pretty, even if I'm not skilled at coloring/shading/blending. So now that I have a few, I will use them and see what happens. I figured at the very worst, I'll have some pretty colors to use to color with. This card uses the sketch found here.

Stamps: SU Bloomin' Beautiful, SU Upsy Daisy
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Copic R32, R35, R37, Bic Mark-its (for green and brown)
Cardstock: PTI Berry Sorbet, PTI Sweet Blush
DP: Scrapworks
Accessories: Glitter Glue, Cuttlebug, Stylized Flowers Embossing Folder

Pretty card! I like how you added the squares so they were cut off. Did that make any sense? And your colors are beautiful. I like the glittery flower centers as well.

You did a great job coloring. I haven't tried copics yet...I LOOK but haven't taken the plunge yet!
