A friend of mine has a birthday coming up in July and I know she loves flowers so I decided to pull out this particular stamp for her. It is a Stampin' Up stamp and I am just learning to shade using the ShinHan markers so that is a new skill for me... It took me a long time to colour this flower - and then the hardest part was finding paper that co-ordinated with it. The markers I used supposedly co-ordinate with Pixie and Hollyhock but those paper colours looked terrible with the coloured flower so I ended up using Smoothie cardstock instead as it was the closest colour match. Either way, I'm sure she will love her card.
