May Release, Day 1

Flourishes is releasing 3 new stamp sets this week, and today I'm showing a card using the new set called Nasturtiums, which feature nasturtium flowers.  I stamped the image in Memento ink, and colored it in using Copic Markers.  For your chance to win this set, head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter and leave a comment, they are having a one day only blog candy.  I have said this before, my favorite coloring medium is Copic markers, they do not have the easiest learning curve, but with lots of practice, trial an error, you will get amazing results (with the right paper of course).
Now this card would have been just as beautiful without the black border and lace, it would be very clean and classy, but when you add a little bit of black contrast it makes the colors in the card very vibrant, and in my experience your card will photograph better too.
"Orange Delight"

materials used:
Nasturtiums & Violet stamp set from Flourishes
Curvy Rectangle Nestability, scallop border punch
black lace, orange gingham ribbon
Copic Markers


Take a blog stroll through the rest of the DT to see their gorgeous cards using this set

WOW! This is marvelous. I love the color combo (orange is my fave) of orange black and green. That orange gingham ribbon over the black lace is to die for. And nasturtiums are such pretty flowers.
