Dahlias

Hey there! I am back! Today I have for you a card using my newest PTI acquisition, Delightful Dahlias. Have you looked at Dahlia pictures on the net? These flowers come in every color combination imaginable! Perfect for copic coloring! There are some beautiful varigated Dahlias out there too, which inspired todays card. The Dahlias are stamped in black and colored with copics. Same for the leaves. The card base is stamped with Pure Poppy using PTI's Tin Type. I then layered on three shades of PTI twill (poppy, summer sunrise, and orange zest). The sentiment is stamped in poppy.
Here's a coloring close up. These are so much fun to do, but I would say there is a bit of learning curve. My first three tries turned out hideous. Like in the trash, hideous.
Here are the copics I used, oops ones missing! Its YR04. Sorry about that! Happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!
