Copic Fun!!

I've had this Blooming with Love set from SU! for the longest time and never took the time to ink it up - while it was snowing last night I decided to think Spring!
Usually with my Copics I try to make a totally smooth look but this time I decided to keep the pots looking kinda mottled - -
Lots of greens make the topiary come to life - I really like Y26 Mustard - I used on the pots and on the leaves.
Looks pretty now but is missing something -
Some light Warm gray to "ground" the pots and then some of the new ultra-light Copics to make a sunshine-y background -
Cut and embossed with my nesties and a favorite sentiment from A Muse and this card is finished -
Hope you have some time to do some stamping this weekend -

Wonderful coloring...and thanks so much for the detailed photos. I'm coloring-challenged, and it's helpful to see the process.
