Toucan Floral



Hi there. Hope you are having a good start to the middle of your week so far! I guess the sunshine inspired me yesterday because I came up with a tropical card. This image is from the latest Whipper Snapper release and it is called Toucan Floral. After coloring it with Copics, I added a lot of highlights with a Sharpie Poster-Paint pen. I followed Taylored Expressions Sketch 100 for the layout. It truly is a great sketch! I love all the different shapes. I added a lot of stitching using my Janome Sew Mini. The sentiment comes from the Sweet Expressions set. The brads match in real life - I promise ;) Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Toucan Floral, Sweet Expressions
Paper: Taken with Teal, white, My Mind's Eye
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: YG00, 91, 93, 95, 97, R08, 20, 22, BG10, 11, 15, 18, 72, C1
Other: Sharpie Poster-Paint pen, circle Nesties, Janome Sew Mini, Basic Grey Eva brads, Aqua Mist Twill (PTI), Aqua Mist button (PTI)
