H A Dalia

Hi there!

I already posted one card I made with the Hero Arts Dalia stamp and cut set.  I made two more recently.
I also wanted to show you what I do when I get in a new flower stamp.

I get a google image of the flower.  Many times growers have a grid of seed pack flower images that show a variety of colors for that particular flower.  I like having that guide - but that doens't mean there will be no more blue flowers - which for some reason I find fascinating.  That little snippet is stored along with the stamp and die.

I used copics to color, sticking with two color blends as the petals were small.  The coral version was plopped on to a card base embossed with a new SU ef. I colored the little dots with a marker to add just a bit more interest to the base - ok yes- all that white freaked me out.

The yellow version has nuvo drops added.

Thanks much for stopping by~
