Bouquet for Mother's Day


This is a bouquet of flowers for all the mothers out there! I know it's a bit early for Mother's Day but I wanted to wish each and every one of you a beautiful day.

This image was printed out - then printed out again - and then again! I first colored it in the yellow/orange with my Copics. Ok, it looked pretty good. Then I colored one in the light pink with my Prismacolor pencils. Hey, it looks pretty good too. Now, let's try the Copics again - so I colored the darker pink one! WOW! They ALL looked pretty good. But I only needed one card! So I decided to use all three for the bouquet! I "popped" up each flower a little higher using dimensionals to give it some depth. The flower image was a free digital from
Jessica Lynn Original that you can find here. This is only the 2nd time I've used my Copics and the image was so nice to practice my coloring on. The sentiment is from Tenny Tiny Wishes by SU. I used White and Pixie Pink card stock. The DP is from some I had in my stash. I also added a tiny bit of glitter to some of the petals to give it some oomph!

Thanks for stopping by...............

Lynn! Great job coloring in those flowers! I like the layering of copics and pencils! I gotta get going on my MDCs. I just took an order to make two of them for a friend! I guess I know what I'll be working on tomorrow!!!
