Flourishes Friday Focus - Copic Collections

Welcome back to another Flourishes Friday--today we're focusing on Flourishes' Copic collections. 

For my card, I chose to work with Seeds Of Friendship and Sunflowers. First, I stamped the seed packet image on light green card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then I cut it out and cut out the large blank section inside. Then I stamped the SEEDS image and the 25¢ image.

I wanted the center section cut out to serve as a frame for my sunflower image. It was stamped on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. For the sunflower center I used the Flesh Tones #2 Collection. For the flower petals I used the Sunflower Collection and for the leaves I used the Evergreen Collection. After I had my sunflower colored, I trimmed it to fit the seed packet and popped the seed packet up on foam strips to give it some dimension. Then I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with my Grand Calibur and a Spellbinder's Nested Lacey Pennant die. Finally I tied a hand tea dyed yellow gingham bow around. My patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Origins collection.


Now, be sure to check out how my team mates have used their Copic collections today:
