Curtain Call: June - Succulent

Sorry to be so late in the game, Curtain Call!  I just got my hot little hands on a new stamp, and I just HAD to get it inky - and guess what?  This color-fearing girl got her Copics on!  I also learned something today ... since I love grey so much, I now know that color over grey makes all of them more pleasing to my eye!

Here is the fabulous June Curtain Call inspiration:


Now remember my Copic collection is growing [at about the rate that succulents do] and my skills are really limited, too.  I had these available, and put them to work the best I know how:


 Add a few neutral greys for shading, and voila!

MFT's scalloped edge die helps put those pretty Waffle Flower succulents in the spotlight.
Succulents, and sentiment, stamped in Memento London Fog onto MFT Grout Grey cardstock.
 
Thank you for sharing two little bits of your day with me ... I really do appreciate it!

I always thought succulents had a grayish cast to them so of course stamping them on gray and coloring them so spectacularly gave them the perfect look, Michele.

Your Copic collection is bigger than mine, Michele... I don't own any! I think your colouring skills are great as your card looks fantastic! Wonderful take on the inspiration photo!

You may have a minimal Copic collection but your coloring makes a huge impact! Wonderful layout too! The scalloped panel and wonderful sentiment are so lovely.
