Just Because...

Good evening! How have everyone been doing? I didn't realize how long it has been since I have done any blogging. I have been busy with projects and other things that I needed to catch up on since I was gone for awhile last month. I am still not caught up but I was missing doing some paper projects. I made a simple card today. I haven't inked up my new Year of the Flowers: Violets set from PTI yet and was itching to. I tried something that I haven't done yet was to stamp on colored CS and then color it in. I stamped the Violet on PTI Lemon Tart with Smokey Shadow ink and then used my copics to color it in. I love how it turned out. I would love to hear what you think.

The size of this card is 4 X 4 1/4. I like this size for a note card. I think I will make a few more of these with different sentiments for a set to give as a gift for a friend of mine that is having a birthday in a couple of weeks.

I will leave you with the details of the supplies I used.

Have a wonderful evening or day depending on when you are reading this.
Thank you for stopping by!
Liz

LOVE the result of your stamping the image on colored cardstock and then coloring it in... and your coloring/shading is beautifully done, too.
