Follow Your Heart Card

Hello! Wanda checking in with ya!  If it's Wednesday it must be my day here at iCopic! Thanks for coming by today to see what I've got for you! I hope your week has been a good one! Today's card is a clean and simple design with Copic coloring. let the color do the talking! I've included lots of pictures of my coloring in case you're following along and wanting to know how I got this look.

Here is my palette. The first color is V12 and the green one that you can't see the color on is G21. I thought about using Blue Violet but decided to stick with true green and true violet purple.

First step is to put down some gorgeous V17 in the centers. Feather the color outwards from the center in quick strokes.

My second color is V15...going out a bit further from the center color but still leaving white space.

I used my lightest color last to blend all three colors together. Go back over your entire image with the light shade to mix it around and dissolve your pen strokes.

Here are my greens...same concept for the leaves. I started darker towards the middle of the image to keep it consistent for my eye.

I stamped and colored a second flower image and then cut out just the center three flowers to put on top of my main image. This is an easy way to give your card dimension and interest.

Okay...so I couldn't completely resist blinging it up! Just a few purple rhinestones and just a few pearls... You can see how the flower came together. I put some foam tape underneath tat second set of flowers. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up rub on.
