Tune in Tuesdays - Flowers

Finally, I got to sit and color this gorgeous Peony from The Angel Company. These happen to be one of my favorite flowers and I remember I was so excited to move "north" so that I could plant some in my gardens. They were one of my first plant purchases and by now the bushes are getting to be a lovely size.

Card Materials: Lovely Peony, Copics, Emma Soar with it Collection

This was so easy to color! I started with my darkest color each time and then worked backwards, but I just used the shading of the stamp image to "tell" me where to lay down the color. I grabbed the pinks and yellows from the Caboodle C Copic set and the green I chose was from Set F. Best of all, they went perfectly with the Emma paper collection. I hope you'll have a chance to play along...who doesn't love flowers?!?
