I started with the flowers from Charming Garners from the New A*muse Studio Inspiration Guide and Catalog. I colored them with my Copic markers - and just LOVE the vivid red I achieved. The secret is really the addition of the BV23 to the shadow areas of the petals.
Flowers: R25, R29, BV23
For added dimension I wanted to add the stamens of the flowers with our Simple Stick powder and Papaya Flocking - also from the A*muse Studio Inspiration Guide and Catalog. So I grabbed my VersaMark ink and stamped them inside the flowers and sprinkled with SImple Stick Powder. Heated just til melted then sprinkled the flocking on top and shook off the excess. Now it was not exactly the look I wanted - so I also stamped right back on top of the Flocking with Papaya ink and the same stamen images. Wanting a little more detail I added just a few scribbles with my Copic Multilines .05.
I am not totally convinced that I like the flocking on the stamens - but it is ok. I think because I loved the red flowers so much it makes the flocking ok! I am being uber picky I know! You all know how you feel when you are super excited to try something and it is just not as pesctacular as you wanted? That is what I am feeling. I still like the card though - and hope you do too!

I did some major re-arranging on the old blog yesterday - I even figured out how to add the social media goodies to the footer of all my posts! I know it took me long enough, right? I hope if you are looking for anything on my blog you can find it easily!
