Copic Botanical challenge

I created this card to join in on the fun with the Copic Creations gang. The challenge is to use botanicals. I just love to color flowers and this Mixed Flowers stamp from Impression Obsession is a joy to color. It has such great shading right on the stamp so that coloring is a breeze.

I began by stamping the image on Cyrogen white paper from Cutcardstock.com with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Copics used:
Flowers: YR12, YR16, YR18
Center - YR16, YR18, R08
Leaves - YG03, Y15
Background - B34

I airbrushed the tag with B34 before removing it from the die. I colored the ribbon with YR18 as well as the center of the sunflower charm. Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

I love the orange colors on this. I was at Stacey's yesterday and bought the grouping of Copics you recommend for faces. I wasn't happy with the Ciao faces, no warmth. So I will try your suggestions. Maybe I will see you at the show on Saturday.
