For You

Today's card is another simple one.  The main image is from Melanie Muenchinger's beautiful floral set called Stately Flowers 1.  It's an easy flower to colour, I coloured the petals with Copic Markers R35, R32 and R30, adding first the darker shade R35 as shown, and then R32 and finally filling in the flower with R30.  The flower centre is coloured with Y21 and Y17, the leaves are coloured with YGYG95, YG17, YG11 and the background with G000.  The tiny sentiment is from Melanie's other set A Year of Flowers.  If you know Melanie, she illustrates such beautiful floral stamps which I absolutely love.

Did you know that Melanie is giving away a signed copy of her book A Year of Flowers this week at CAS-ual Fridays (CFC#46)?  That's so exciting and I just can't wait to play along.  Thought I should be more organised this week and not forget the deadline ;)  When I was thinking of a song, the one that comes to mind was one from The Sound of Music called My Favourite Things - one of my favourite things is stamping and colouring flowers.  Flowers just seem to brighten and cheer my day!


Here's another look at the card:

Have a lovely weekend!
