Bouquet of Flowers

 
My favorite cards to make are those that feature flowers, especially with stamps by Marcella Hawley of Power Poppy and also with stamps she designed for Flourishes.  I love this stamp from Countryside Bouquet Deluxe that I inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using only 3 Copic markers-B21, Y13, and YG63.  I cut the image into 3 panels and created the card with a base of White CS and a layer of Graphics 45 pattern from Secret Garden pad. I finished with a Power Poppy Sentiment stamped on Clear Vellum with Versamark and embossed with WOW Yellow EP.  Copic YG63 was used to edge the panels and pattern layer...gives the look of layers but without additional papers and weight.
Challenge:
Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge: You Pick 3 -Create something using only 3 markers. See link for complete details.  I used Blue (B21), Yellow (Y13), Green (YG63) from complementary Color families.  Not as easy as it may sound.
