{Neat & Tangled} You Mean So Much To Me

I'm playing along with Kathy Racoosin's 10th 30-Day Colouring Challenge and for Day 3, a few local friends and I are using Neat & Tangled's Friendly Florals stamp set. Tracey heat embossed the flowers and cut them with her Brother ScanNCut for us but I've linked to the coordinating Friendly Florals Dies in my supply list below.

She forced me to get out my Copics for these beautiful flowers and I have to say that in over a decade of using Copics, I've never used them on heat embossed images so that was both scary and weird for me. LOL It did help me stay inside the lines though! [Note: As it turns out, the flowers were stamped on Bristol and I was supposed to watercolour them. I guess Copics blend quite well on Bristol, too. Haha!]

After I finished colouring all the flowers and foliage, I arranged them into a big bouquet. Then I stamped a sentiment from Dala Horse and sponged around the two corners with the Parquet Stencil and soft lilac and arctic inks to match the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hey, I used Copics, too. :D There is no wrong colouring, as long as it works. Beautiful bouquet, especially framed with the soft stencilling!

This is so pretty! I Love how the soft inking just sets off the flowers!
