Botanicals

 This card is made for the Copic Challenge blog and the theme for the next 2 weeks is called "Botanicals" Iam typing this posting while iam coloring the flower in - otherwise i would totally forget about the Copic markers :-) for the flower petals i have started my base with Y17, than added shadows with Y35, added to the lower petals and some to the top ones YR04 and blended everything with Y15. this looked already nice but since this is for the Copic Challenge i wanted to go fancy so i used Y15 and added some greens YG05 with the tip of Y15. the next circle is base color E31 to the center of flower E34 than outer center towards flower petals is YR21 and blended with E50. Inner circle of flower is made with E25 and shadows with E57. Leafs and stem: yg08, YG07 (to make it look juicy), YG03, YG67, yg91 (blending), yg93 (base color)
 To add some interest and elegance to this rather simple card i have painted the flower petals with Shimmerz paint Golden Wheat and Cocoa and the outer circle is painted with Candle light.
