Copic Creations # 8 Botanicals



As the name suggests, the challenge this time on Copic Creations, is Botanicals.
I've used a lovely stamp that hasn't seen the light of day in a log time.
I have no idea who manufactured it. There isn't a name on it anywhere.
(Can't even remember where I bought it)!

I have an extra special reason for making sure I enter this one!
Flourishes are sponsoring it and I have drooled over the Strawberry set for ages.
I've drooled over MOST of their stamps actually) and this is an outside chance of me getting my mitts on it.

I've coloured it with Copics,
(not much point in entering the challenge if I hadn't is there)?LOL
Cut round it and popped it with silicone and placed it on a Top Note diecut..
I embossed the CS with my Sizzix embossing folder. Love those titchy flowers.
Base card is white linen.
ribbon from my stash threaded through a Nestie label diecut.
Brilliant set. (Don't need the SU word window punch now).

Thanks for your visit, you're always welcome and I'd love it if you left me a comment.

OMG this has blown me away such a beautiful card, those pansys just look so real dear. STUNNING. You asked what PK stamps I bought, I am afraid to say I bought too many, The Snowmen (4 stamps) the Little Surfer, The Beach babe and the Birthday Girl cannot wait to start using them, thanks for nudging me in their direction

Hi Viv,

You've made a very beautiful card and the colors are stunning! If I'm not mistaken, the stamp looks very much like a PSX stamp, but they always 'claim their stamps' with their name printed on the side. If it's not a PSX, and the stamp is made from a translucent green substance, then it could possibly be a 'Rubber Stamps by Montargs' stamp from New Zealand. Hope that's helpful.

Wow, Viv, these pansies just jump right off the card. I love the rich vibrant blues you chose. This is a beautiful card. Best of Luck in the challenge.

Hi Viv, Your card is beautiful! At first I thought it might be PSX too, but it looks smaller than the PSX Botanicals (Very Large), so what I am thinking is it may be Inkadinkadoo, as they bought out a lot of PSX designs. Hope this helps! Hugs Lori
