Another Violet

Hey there! Happy Saturday! I have another Violet for you today. I will admit I have been practicing my coloring on these guys, they are so challenging! I stamped this violet on PTI white in dark chocolate and then went to town with my copics. I did the same with the leaves. Next I cut them all out. For the base I used PTI Enchanted Evening. I stamped it with versa mark. I used my scallop die on some PTI linen vellum. I then stamped with the sentiment from violets in Enchanted Evening. I added a little row of pearls to set it off.
Here is a close up of the flower. I really like this one. It took quite a while to color it, lots of layers of color here, even on the leaves. Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping in.

Wow! Your coloring is great. Are you self-taught or have you taken classes.

Hi Pat! Thanks for your kind words. I am self taught with the copics. I did take a lot of art classes in college (way back! lol), however done were with markers.
