Citrus Flowers

For this card I chose an orange, lemon and lime theme but in muted shades so that it didn't end up too fierce looking!!

As you have already probably guessed the main image is from the Funky Frames stamp sheet and the words and flourishes are from the Fancy Flourishes sheet. Just like the card I posted up a few days ago I started off with 2 plain pieces of Bazzill cardstock and built up my backgrounds using different flourishes and inkpads. This is such an easy thing to do but looks really effective especially when you use 2 or 3 different sorts of flourishes.

The flowers were coloured with Copics again which I have got to say I just love!! The ink from these markers just glides onto the paper and as I said yesterday you achieve such a nice, clean, fresh look with them - perfect for summer flowers!! Sets of Copic Ciaos can be purchased from The Craft Barn and as you know by now the stamp sheets can be bought from either The Stamp Man or The Craft Barn.
