Lots of Copic Coloring

For some reason, I really felt the need to color last night. I had the idea of a long, skinny card and wanted to use the Wallpaper Flowers stamp from Hero Arts. The only problem is, this stamp isn't long enough. After a couple of design ideas went through my head, I came up with the idea of lining it up and stamping it twice.



I told you I needed to color last night! :)

The beautiful ribbon is another from the bagful I received from Vanessa and the sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

It's a rainy morning and I'm on vacation from work, so hoping to keep the creativity flowing today. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Tuesday! :)

I love the long card first of all, and I really love how you stamped it all the way across- it's really beautiful to fill up all that space. That was a whole lot of coloring! Sometimes I get in that kind of mood too :)

The blue palette is found on the cool side of the spectrum Barb and it is seen as refreshing,it is also restful, so I can envisage you colouring away and getting lost in the moment and thoroughly enjoying the task at hand, you should be delighted with the result as it is truly a lovely card.
