So I decided to colour one of Power Poppy's new Digi stamps called Pansies and coloured them with my FAV medium....COPICS!  I've printed the digi stamp onto X-press It Blending Card (both the image and sentiment) and then coloured it with Copics (B60, B63, B66, B69, V12, V15, V17, V28, Y11, Y15, G20, G21, G24, G28, B0000, B000, B21, W1, W2, W5).  I've cut this into a square and matted with Wisteria Wonder cut with Marvelous Squares and a square of cream card.  This was attached to the case base of cream, Wisteria Wonder and Maja Designs DP with a piece of So Saffron ribbon down the side. To finish I've added a few yellow pearls to the bottom corner.

Stamps - Pansies (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Cream, Wisteria Wonder, Maja Designs DP
Ink - Printer
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Squares and Marvelous Squares Dies, So Saffron Ribbon, Yellow Pearls

Precious little faces in you pansies! I love seeing the vintage patterned paper on your card Kathy! I grew up near "Old Lydia Colby" who was known for her cute little green house on her property and pansies for sale on an old painted table with a coffee tin to collect your payment as she kept to work in the gardens! Beautiful!
