July FOM-Larkspar: Take Two

I made a second card using PTIs FOM set- Larkspar. I loved this set when I saw it in person at CHA, so guess what, I had to buy it.
I cut the oval out of Georgia Pacific white cardstock. I have looked at a lot of videos on using Copic markers and about half of the people recommend this cardstock for blending the colors, others recommend Gina K cardstock. It was easier for me to go to Wal Mart and buy a ream of the GP, so that is what I use when I am going to color with Copic markers. On this card I chose to color all the flowers yellow and then I outlined the flowers in gray. At first I was frightened that it would look horrible, but I actually like the way it looks and it gives the image more dimension. I know I definately need more practice, but I am pleased with the way this image turned out. I used Mellow moss cardstock, Stampin Up! for the strip, ran it through the script Cuttlebug embossing folder and tied a yellow ribbon around the middle. I also pop dotted the matted oval for more dimension.
Just a CAS card, practicing my coloring skills. Let me know what you think and have a blessed day.
