Spring Bloom

If you are looking for my BLOG CANDY, be sure to check it out here!  It's available until March 3rd!

I have so many stamp sets in my cupboard, I decided it's time to dust some of them off!  This beautiful image is Bloomin' Beautiful by Stampin Up!  I coloured it in with my Copics (R24, R20, YG97, YG95, YG93) and sponged the edges.  The printed page in the background is a page out of a dictionary, sponged with SU's Cameo Coral ink.  For added detail, the corner is paper pierced.  I stamped the bloom a second time and cut out the front petals.  I used dimensionals to pop out the tops of the petals.  Here's a close-up:
