Copic Creations 8 - Botanicals

EDITED
This is my second attempt at colouring 'botanicals for Copic Creations. They're pretty much like "Chalk and Cheese". This is one of Chris's digi images and I decided to keep the whole card very simple and let the beautiful image speak for itself. The paper is downloaded from The Sweet Shoppe I added pearls from Basic Grey, a butterfly charm from the Hobby House and ribbon from stash. When I look at this card it reminds me of my lovely friend Larissa's style, which is fabulously clean, simple and stunning!! Thanks for the inspiration Larissa.


This is for Copic Creations challenge which is botanicals - I don't like it!! I think I'll have to try again. There is something not right - the layout, the colours - don't know.
The orange is stamped with Basic Grey flourish stamp in Memento Rich cocoa ink, the paler green is covered with a vellum run through the 'bug' with the Stylized Flower folder and the corners cut with an EK Success punch. The rose was coloured with Copics (of course) and I had meant to write down the colours but forgot.
I've just re-photographed it and like it better now. I have a pretty good daylight lamp but I still don't think the colours come out 'true' - must leave photographing cards until daylight.
I'm still going to do another one, I keep forgetting I have some of the lovely Chris's digi images in my computer so I'm going to use one of those.
