Grazia Salvo Woman of Flowers 4 in Copics

 “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

copic markers, Tim Holtz die, clear rhinestones., Grazia Salvo digi from Etsy, green cardstock base, white gel pen. silver leafing pen

Hi friends. 
As promised, I'm posting another spring birthday card with a stunning digi image by Grazia Salvo. I colored this amazing image in blue and green peacock tones for my peacock loving friend. 

I created a subtle partially die cut background panel on a green 5 x 7 inch card base and embellished with clear rhinestone corners.  There are also several rhinestones in the background which you can see if you look very closely. I used a white gel pen to accent the flowers and a silver leafing pen to line the white panel. The image is layered on my background with  mounting tape  for added dimension. 

I just can't get over the wonderful artistry in these Grazia Salvo images.  They have fast become some of my favorites to color!

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
