Just a Note

Hello,

  1. Marika, this is just so stunning! Your coloring is just so amazing that it's hard to tell that these flowers are flat and not an embellishment! Love it!

  2. Masterful!! Superb colouring, and so clever to cut the outline for the trim to sit behind. It's like trompe l'oei!l

  3. Shirley-bee is right, the method you used is like trompe l'oeil...so very clever. Love the Copic base then adding such detail with pencils. The color choices also delight me. You're such an artist. Under your hand, you can watch how quickly these images come to life.

  10. This card is so beautiful. Soft and delicate looking. When I first saw it, I thought those were flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts or some other flower vendor, just not cardstock. Your an amazing colorist.
