Faux Photographed Flowers

This was quite a challenge for me to use pastels as I don't have a lot of Copics and I tend to go deep with color.  Well, I love how this turned out.  I colored the cosmos like a type of delphinium I adore that has iridescent blue purple blossoms. Tried anyway :-)  You can't tell in the photo but I added Wink of Stella for faux iridescence.  Flowers are so my favorite things to color.

I had faux photo borders that I ended up not using for another project and used here to focus on the image but also to hide boo boos.  Be very glad you can't see the mess at the bottom or behind the first image--LOL!   Btw, I used a square and rectangle die to create the photo border.  Needs must.

The Details:  Power Poppy Countryside Bouquet, Penny Black Nature's Wishes sentiment, Recollections white 110lb cardstock, Gmund Savanna Limba 111lb coverstock (woodgrain), Enamel Accents, My Favorite Things Pierced Square and Rectangle dies, PTI Fresh Snow ink, Stampendous white detail fine embossing powder, Copic 0, N3, N5, B0000, B00, YG0000, YG11, YG63, YR0000, YR02, YR07, Y00, Y11, Y15, BV0000, BV00, V12, V15
