Bildmålarna's Mimosa

Here is a cute little card I made for the first Bildmålarna challenge to make a summer card.  This is Mimosa in the Garden, isn't she a sweetie?


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  I stamped the image a second time, coloring only the top blossom, the leaf on the lower left, the flower sign, the watering can and Mimosa's bow, then cut them out.  Copics used:
Mimosa - E0000, E000, E00
Top - G40, G21
Pants and Bow - B91, B93
Fence - E41, E42
Watering Can - C1, C2
Flower Pot - E95, E97, E41
Leaves - G21, Y15
Blossoms - V12, Y15
Sign - G40
I airbrushed B93 around the image.  Then I popped up the cut out pieces to give the image some added dimension.  The DP is from the Kioshi Basic Grey collection.  Finished size is 5x7 inches. 

Challenges:
OWH Stars and Stamps - Sketch
Daisy Doodles - Summertime 
Quirky Crafts - Summer
