A Wild Flower For You

Hello Friends!

This pretty Wildflower -D8998 was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black and colored up with Copics...
Petals~RV63, RV69,RV99
Stem~YG11,YG63, YG67

I stamped Sweet Beautiful You - B13114 in Memento Rich Cocoa and sponged  the edges with Adirondack Wild Plum.  I added some leaves using the Vine DIE051-B and sponged them with Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I just couldn't find a ribbon to match the Daisy Petals in my stash, so I used my Copic Airbrush System and colored some white satin Ribbon with an RV63 Copic Marker.

Added a rhinestone flourish, some dry embossing and to finish it off I spray the white background panels with homemade Frost All Purpose Ink Spray to finish it off.

I am entering this in the following challenges......
Impression Obsession~Flowers For You
