Everything's coming up Teal

I've had this idea for ages. I've wanted to color and image,then cut it up and space it out across my card.  I managed to put that idea to paper this weekend and this is the result.


I used a Flourishes image and colored it with my copic markers--BG02,04,06.  I got to use my Authentique paper. I'm in love with their colors.  I added some seam binding that I also colored with my copic marker so it would match  (BG02).  Those BG colors have been in my case,but I haven't used them very much, but I think they will be a go to color now.

It's a great start to the week.  I've got more cards to show you. The weekend was really productive and I'm glad. I love times like that.  I hope you had a great weekend too. 

Thanks for your comments. I read every one and appreciate the time you take.

  7. Yeah I agree; we love the colours!!! Teal is one of my favourite colours too, even if I sometimes just call is "dark turquoise" or something...
