Flower Garden

I just love summer when all of my plants are in full bloom. Sure there are lots of weeds competing with them, but I'm waiting on the rains to soften the dirt - that's my excuse for not weeding (rain is in the forecast!).





And with summer, it's a great time to use those flower stamps! On this card I started playing around with Copic markers. Now that TAC is carrying them in small color friendly families, I've finally broken my resolve and am giving them a try. I really went out of the edge on this sunflower so I ended up cutting it out - couldn't waste it! I need lots of practice but it was fun to try. I do find pencils or watercoloring is much easier...



All stamps and paper from The Angel Company
