Willow in Red

Another commission card - sorry.

I have coloured willow in using copics and mounted her onto an easel card using basic grey wassill pack - I adore this pack. For a bit of difference instead of surrounded her in distressed inks I used a watered down mixture of primrose yellow twinkling H2O's which gives it a beauiful and discrete gold tinge to the paper. The flowers I made up to resemble a bouquet and added a pearl in the middle for depth and then added sparkles to the edges of the flower to resemble dew. I have been doing this for the last few months and love the effect, think I will need to buy some more soon though! The papers have been mounted onto black card stock to create the card as I wanted to keep to a particular pallette and white would have been too harsh. The leaves have been cut out using my favourite fern punch.

I hope you like it
