*It Wasn't Easy!*

It took a long time, but I managed to make a card.

When I decided to stamp, I wanted to do two things:
1.  I wanted to use  my Copics
2.  I didn't want to rely on a sketch or other challenge (which I do a lot of lately)

So this card isn't spectacular, but it's something I did, all on my own, over the course of a few hours.  I am very pleased with the colouring I did. Love that I used I stamp that hasn't seen ink in more than a handful of years.  And I'm happy that I did it without aid of a sketch or using someone else's card as a guideline.

It's simple, but that's OK
See... simple...

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Basic Black and Summer Sun; PaperTreyInk white
*Images:  PSX
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers
*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities
*Embellishments:  black ribbon
*Challenges:  EONAC4

This card uses a stamp that I had to have many years ago...  a beautiful stamp by PSX.  I just love tulips and this image screamed to me when I saw it at the store.  I used it quite a bit with Radiant Pearls back in the day.  But it's been sitting on my shelf for quite a while now.  I could never part with it...  it's far too beautiful!  Thanks to Allison and Sue, I had an excuse to play with this image again.

Beautiful card Nancy. I have it too, along with the tiny mini 1 inch of the same, and tulips are my fav flower to colour. Keep at it!
