For my card I used the Concord & 9th stamp sets, Wildflower and You are Enough and had fun doing some Copic marker coloring. I started out by using black Palette ink and stamped three of the main flowers. Then on a scrap piece of paper I stamped the same flowers again and cut them out so that I could use them as a mask before stamping the rest of my flowers. Next I stamped my sentiment from the You are Enough set and heat set the ink using my heat tool. I started coloring my leaves first using two shades of green (YG00/YG25), then next I colored the large pink flower (RV11/RV23/RV14/RV25), then the yellow flowers (Y11/Y15/Y17/Y38). I moved on to the three orange flowers (Y38/YR16/YR18) and then blended in some color around the flowers and stems for a background (BG10/BG32/BG15/BG18). To finish off my card I used some foam tape to adhere it to a white card base and then added some iridescent sequins and some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the centers of the flowers.
