Calla Lilies

I used the two smallest sizes from Spellbinder's Grand Labels One to make the card base and the blue layer. I think the Grand Size Nesties have to be in my top ten of products. I love the idea of using them for shaped cards, changing card making completely from our traditional square and rectangle card shapes! The moment I saw this stamp I wanted to color it immediately. I loved this image!
I am really really liking these new Copic Greens, G46 and G43! I have been reaching for them over and over whenever I am coloring any leaves. The flowers remain white basically, so very easy to color this image, or not color it in this case! To make the white of the flowers stand out I added BG000 to the background.
After I added the bow and the card was assembled I added Glossy Accents to the flower edges, basically outlining them. In the light that little glossy edge makes the flowers really stand out, but it does not show up well in the picture.
