Final Mother's Day Card

I had to wait for my Mom in Law to get back from her trip so that she could open up her Mother's Day card, and now that she has I can post it.  I used the beautiful Hero Arts "Butterfly Flowers" for this card, it's such a beautiful image to colour.

Paper: Hero Arts notecard; PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Copic Markers; Memento Tuxedo Black; CTMH Dye Ink (Juniper)
Stamps: Hero Arts (H5489; S4878); PTI Tiny Tags set
Other: PTI Tiny Tags Die; Stampin Up Scallop border punch; Crinkle Ribbon; Pearl (stash); Stickles

I think I am going to cut down on my descriptions of my cards, especially since many of them are quite self-explanatory.  I just feel silly writing down step by step details especially since everyone who visits my blog on a regular basis actually knows more than I do.  If I use a specific technique or do something different then I will explain it.  I'll also try to figure out how to put an "e-mail me" option on the side bar, although you can do that through Blogger if you follow my blog anyway.  I hope that's ok with you.

So the only thing to point out here is that all the colouring was done with Copic Markers.  I also paper pieced the two yellow flowers for dimension, and I rubbed some stickles randomly over the flowers.  I normally add a little dot of the stickles on the image and then rub it around with my finger.

What a great morning to go for a run, perfect weather! I hope you have a great start to your day. Thank you for visiting.

Like I said before, this is so pretty IRL :) The teal-ish blues you used go so beautifully with the yellow card. Your piecing is perfect, and I also love the script on the scalloped edge. The tiny tag is the perfect "cherry" on the top! :)
