F is for Flowers



This is my entry for this week's alphabet challenge set by Linda...I used the flower stamp from the friendship set of stamps from innovative stamp creations and coloured it using my new copic markers...one of my first experiments with them.





While I'm on the subject of the friendship set I'd like to share the atc I made for Chrissy Rollins atc swap..the theme was to use pages of a phone directory on the atc...I gessoed my phone directory (aka my stamping pad) and then stamped and layered up my images..... I made the mistake of using letrast promarkers to colour the flowers..I don't think they liked the gesso, which seems to have dried the tip rather. So I used conventional watercolour paints to colour the rest of the image. Two little spots of glossy accents on the eyes and some stickles on the flower centres and butterfly.




Enjoy

Two stunning ATCs Sue, the F challenge one is fab, (ignoring the colour of the flowers of course!) and I love what you have done with the directory! Many thanks for taking part again this week. :)
