I have a sweet birthday card to share today featuring Spirit of Hibiscus a gorgeous stamp from Aurora Wings:

Hibiscus Spirit

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20 eyes: G28, YG61 white opaque marker multiliner o.3 hair: E47, E57, E55, E53 flowers: YR18, YR16, YR14, YR12, Y23, Y00, YR09, R24 leaves: G20, YG67, YG63, YG61, G28

I’ve partially fussy cut my image then die cut, stamping and sponging in the white space with Sahara Sand ink gives a more muted effect. I’ve added some sweet apricot lace behind the pretty framed image to soften the look
