Pretty Poppies

 Hi there! Here is a card using Melanie's newest set, Buds and Vases. I love this beautiful flower stem.

I colored the flowers with Copics, starting with R89. 

Added R29. 

Added R24. 

Filled in most of the way with R22 and used my blender pen to soften the highlights. 

I colored the remaining flowers the same way. 

Used YG03 on the stem and leaves. 

Added YG97. 

Added YG95. 

Then used YG93 to blend the darker colors into the lighter. After coloring, I cut out the image.

I cut a piece of Pure Luxury white cardstock to 2.25 inches square and sponged Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. The sentiment is from Labeled With Love and cut using Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities. Layered with Pure Luxury Lipstick Red, cut using my Spellbinders Fluer De Lis die. I also used DP, from  the DCWV Luxury stack, and an Ivory card base. Overall dimension of the card is 4.25 inches square.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
