Hello Lovely!



Hi friends!

I'm here to share my first ever card using the Concord &9th Hello Lovely stamp set. I've had this set for about a month now but I've been intimidated to stamp and color it -the big flower is not exactly easy to shade! I did enjoy coloring this a lot in the end and I think it's now easier to use this after I've had my first go with it! I colored the image with Copics and added white gel pen dots here and there. 

My color inspiration comes from the May color challenge at Seven Hills Crafts Blog. I chose the color palette on right. My Copic coloring ended up being a bit brighter than the colors in the photo but I hope it's ok! I managed to use all 5 colors which was fun and also helped a lot in choosing colors for this quite large image.
