One Crazy Stamper - Bernadette Watering Flowers

It's my turn at hopefully inspiring you to pop over to One Crazy Stamper (the challenge blog) and enter our Pink challenge that is still going on for the remainder of the month. You have a chance to win a $25 GC to One Crazy Stamper (the store)!! How fantastic is that when Lora carries such fantastic lines like Stampavie, Flourishes, CC Designs, Kraftin' Kimmie, Belles and Whistles and the list goes on and on!! Here's one of my all time fav's by Sarah Kay for Stampavie:

That's Bernadette with Flowers. Isn't she just precious? She was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. Here's a few close ups:


Here's a list of the Copics used:
Skin: E02, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E39, E35, E31
Shirt, Bow and Patches: R20, R22, R24
Jeans: B91, B93, B95
Watering Can: BV25, BV23, BV20
Rocks: E70, E71, E74
Greens and Flowers: YG63, YG11, Y04, B21
Sky: Custom blend. 
You can watch my video to see how I do my backgrounds and clouds here. I still use "my" technique for doing clouds. I think they come out better than using the Airbrush system, but then again, I've not perfected that tool yet!

The paper is from Basic Grey and the punched panel (Martha Stewart) is accented with black pearls.
