I was soooo in the mood to sit down and just color, so this is fun little garden image was perfect and fit the Spring Theme perfectly. The stamp is called Romeo and Juliet... and I guess I covered up Romeo Mouse with my banner and button, oops! My card base looks a little red in the pic, but in person it is a better match to the terra cotta pot color. Sometimes the camera doesn't always get it right and my photography skills are limited!
Here are the Copics I used. I love using the E90's for a terra cotta pot color. I mixed some W5 in to the pots too. I was just sitting and coloring and having a good old time as you can see by all the Copics I pulled out! I also drew a little line in the background with a Memento Black Marker to help me separate the background colors. My spilled dirt is just a bunch of dots made with the E40's.
I added my little hand cut banner with a dab of silicone under the bend to keep it propped up. A little button and jute string bow to embellish. All of the straight line layers were done with Perfect Layers Rulers.
