Happy Blossoms

A couple of weeks ago I did a card for the Verve Mojo Sketch, and WOWZERS I won a Verve set!  Woo Hoo!  I'm so excited Julee has such a way with really great images and design. 

So I just had to get it inky tonight with a quick card.  I used the Verve Release sketch from May for this one and some great Basic Grey Green at Heart papers.

To me these flowers needed some orange for the first time I colored them.  I used a bunch of copics....(YR12, YR14, YR18, YR09, R13, RV09, RV17, RV19, RV69 and then for the greens I started with G40 and G24, G82, but then it didn't have enough lime color in it so I used YG00 overtop) 



I SHOULD have used my finer Ornare piercer for the piercing on top, I would have had a better result, which I'm kicking myself about now, but I do like the bold deep colors against the fresh white.

I'll be back in a few hours with Flourishes Friday, and it's a pretty one! 

Recipe:  Stamps:  Verve - One Person;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Pear Tart;  Papers:  Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Gina K Pure Luxury Cardstock, Basic Grey Green at Heart;  Accessories:  Big Shot, Large Rectangle Labels, Scalloped Rectangle Labels, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Rings Punch, Piercer, Borderabilities, Dimensionals.
