Speedy's Challenge #16, Flowers!

Hello, this is my entry for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #16. This week we are challenge to think flowers! This is my newest flower stamp from Mark's Finest Papers called "Lady Bugs and Carnations!
I stamped the flower & butterfly image onto very vanilla, and on white 2 times. I coloured both the images that were stamped onto the white, using copics. Then I gave the butterfly & flower a little sparkle with some Niji Pearlescent watercolours. I trimmed some of the outer flower petals on one of the stamped images and popped it up. I also popped up the butterfly wings.

Stamp: Ladybugs & Carnations
Paper: kraft (crumb cake), very vanilla, SU dp
Ink: memento tuxedo black, crumb cake
Accessories: copics, petite oval nesties, fleur de lis border ribbon, pearls, Niji pearlscent watercolour, dimensionals

Have a Great Day!
