Botanical Blooms

I just loved a card I saw somewhere made by Melbarkwith with the vase of flowers so here is my version! Yes very much the same sketch as the last card I posted! I used the big oval SU punch for the vase and stamped and cut out all the flowers from the SU Botanical Blooms set which was in our last Sell-a-Bration catalogue.

The grey patterned paper is from the Designer II pack which is a level 1 Hostess gift in the current catalogue. Such pretty colours together - Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Basic Grey and Certainly Celery.

Tomorrow I am off to house sit for my son and DIL while they go to watch the Supercars in Townsville over the weekend. I have my new set of Copics so in between visiting family, I will stamp some images and practise my colouring! Looking forward to that and do hope I can use them to their advantage!

I love the floral arrangement! Really pretty.

I've only recently "got into" watercolouring so I'm looking forward to your Copic posts for inspiration.

Thanks for sharing your creations.
