Gettin' Inky...

Finally got the Butterfly set and Year in Flowers: Violets inky today.  Played with the Copics (and ordered a bunch more).  I have a ways to go on Copics 101 but that is OK.  I'm pretty happy with my amateur attempt. I know it takes practice and time.  Very simple card to make.  I decided I wanted a white base and since I wanted to stamp in Plum Pudding color for the background yet still wrap a ribbon, I matted it white on white.  Gives it a nice clean look.  Colored the 1/4" ribbon with Copic V06.  Looks marvelous.  If you haven't colored a ribbon with Copics yet, do!  I love that any Copic color I own is now a ribbon color I own, too.  WooHoo.

Though the flower looked quite lovely without the butterfly, since I made it... and colored it... by gosh, I was going to use it.
Hope everyone has a very crafty day... if not today, then soon.

Patty, I love how the violet rests on the ribbon and the butterfly rests on the violet. I haven't even thought about using Copics on my butterfly dreams set! :) Beautiful card! :)
