Iris

Aloha dear friends,

I went "normal" today and just colored an iris for the StampTV "Spring Is In The Air" Challenge.

Copic Sketch and Ciao markers are easiest to color with a "feathering" technique because of their brush nibs. The Original bullet-type nib is harder for me to get the thin lines. Most of the colors are in the B and BV family. Before I could add any yellow to the center bottom petals, I had already started spreading deep blues and so this iris will just have to be a simple blue one.

We do have some iris by the front door, in the shade in a planter. I'm not sure what kind they are but they send out flat shoots that hang down and flower on the ends. They are very pretty, are lavender / blue with a few spots, white and yellow on them. The flowers only bloom for a day, maybe two and then are gone.

Stamp Set: "Warm With Love" by Theresa Momber for GKD
Cardstock - GKD 120# White and SU "Perfect Plum"
Ink: "London Fog" for the image, "Lulu Lavender and Summer Sky" for the background, all by Memento
Spellbinder Large Circle Die (taped the negative piece down to sponge the background)
Fiskars corner punch
Clear Sequins by Pretty Pink Posh
