Copic Colour Challenge #9


In between bouts of washing and ironing, ready for our trip to the seaside with Harvey, I managed to make this card for the Copic Colour Challenge No. 9
You have to use one or all of these Copic colours....G99, YR07 and R59, somewhere on your card.
If you don't have the exact colours, then you use the nearest to them.
Now I like to be a bit strict with myself on these colour challenges, so my card contains only those three colours, nothing else.

Recipe
Bazzil CS
Prima flowers (coloured to match)
Poppy stamp from Dimension Fourth
DP from a huge pad got from QVC. Sorry no idea of the name.
SU grosgrain ribbon
SU Top Note die
Black brads for the center of the flowers.
(I blended the YR07 and the R59 together for the colour of the flowers).

Thanks for dropping by, I love to 'see' you.
I love it when you leave a comment too. ;0)
