Flora 2 Showcase

Mitzi at Aurora Wings is really creating some stunning images at the moment and today we have another stunner to Showcase.

Introducing FLORA 2.  She is available Here.  I have coloured her with Copics in the Cool Grey and BG families.

I decided to try and use just two colours (never done this before), I chose Grey and Teal.

My original idea was that just the large flowers would be teal and everything else Grey, but as usual with me, it just kind of evolved and I have ended up with way more Teal than planned, perhaps because it is my favourite colour.

I have made a standard easel card and decorated with some lovely papers I found in the local cheap shop.  I also covered an MDF heart with the paper.

To finish I added a double layer butterfly and some pewter liquid pearls.

If you pop over to the Showcase Blog, you can see what my lovely team mates have created with this beauty.
