Wishing you a day filled with sunshine

Just popping in to share a card using Newton's Nook Stamps

{Supplies are listed below in the thumbnails at the end of the blog post}

Every once in a while I like to pull out my Copic markers and practice. Sandy Allnock's HexChart has been a huge help to me with picking colors and seeing what will blend together nicely. Check out Sandy's You Tube Channel too. She's been a great inspiration to me and makes me want to practice more with Copics and watercoloring.

Here are some more details on my card:
Card Details:
I used Newton's Daydreaming Stamp Set and colored the kitties on some X-Press It Copic quality cardstock with W1-W3 and W4 Copics to get the grayish color. R11 is the purr-fect color for the inside of the ears and nose.

Newton is daydreaming on a little bit of grass, which I colored with YG03. I will be honest...coloring the ground always makes me nervous. I think it's because its the last step for me when I color and could be the thing that makes me have to start over. I'm sweating just thinking about it. lol

For the flowers I used W1 on the petals and the YG03 from the grass to give the stems some color.  
I also added two butterflies to my little scene. The first one I colored with BG10-BG11 and BG32. The yellow butterfly by the sentiment I colored with Y24 and YR31. Once I was done coloring I die cut the image and some pattern paper with a set of stitched square dies and mounted it on a 4" card base.
