Yellow Rose

I'm combining challenges again today. I hadn't come across the Copic Creations blog before but saw it in a post Sandy made on the Crafty Secrets blog because they are sponsoring this week's challenge. I decided to pair up their challenge to use your favourite Copic technique with the Crafty Secrets member company forum challenge at Splitcoast Stampers this week where Darlene has asked us to use yellow.

I don't really have a single favourite technique so I settled on doing something I haven't done for a while and gives an effect I love - combining Copics with coloured pencils. You get speed and vibrancy from the Copics and then control and depth by adding extra detail with pencils.

I've use the large stamp from the Crafty Secrets Rose set ( this is a 5" square card so you can see it's a good sized image) and added the little wording stamp which has the English and Latin names.

I think yellow roses symbolise friendship so this would be a nice card to send to a special friend for just about any occasion.
