Just Because

I wanted to share a card I made tonight....just because I wanted to.  No sketch or color challenge.  Just Because!  I have been waiting to have time to color these beautiful Lenten Roses, otherwise known by it's botanical name as  Hellebore.  As soon as I saw the release, I knew this set would be mine.


 Let me tell you, this took a while for me to color.  I am no Pro when it comes to Copic coloring.  Everything I know is self taught.  I just know I LOVE to color.  I could do this for hours....wait...I do, do this for hours.  hehe.  I am sure a lot of you girls do the same thing.  Right? 


 You can find this set HERE  in the store at Flourishes.

These are the Copic colors I used.

Well, this is short and sweet tonight.  I am off to watch TV with my hubby.  Got fit it all in...somehow!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

I am so not a coloring fan. Only because I don't have enough Copics to color as I would like. Anyhow, your card is beautiful! I can totally see how it is relaxing to color. I watch my students do it everyday and see such joy as they color away. :-) Amy

Coloring takes me FOREVER.. it is so frustrating sometimes. I never pick out my paper until I am done either and that poses a problem at times. This is amazing Heather. I love the way you colored the flowers and then used the blocked background.. Gorgeous. Hope things are good with you. Keep me posted..hugs.
