TE Zinnias

Today is the first day of the August release at Taylored Expressions and I am sharing a card that I made using Zinnia Bouquet.   I love Zinnias and have a whole bunch of them growing under the tree in my front yard.  I leave the heads on after they have turned brown because when they go to seed, the Goldfinches love to eat the seeds.


I colored the stamped image with Copic markers and the patterned papers are from Simple Stories.  Zinnia Bouquet will be available in the Taylored Expressions store on August 8th.


I was inspired by the variety of colors in the bouquet below.  Don't you just love the soft pare green color?

I love this card, Heather! The image is beautiful colored in bright colors, and surrounded with soft color and texture in the dp, sewing, and twine. I sure wish I had a green thumb...that photo of the zinnias is amazing! I didn't know they came in so many colors--especially the mint green!
