Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Saturday was jam packed for me. I went with my Mom to see the Avengers, then we had lunch at On the Border to celebrate Cinco De Mayo and then she took me to my local Scrapbook store...Scrappers Cove. I picked up a lot of beautiful papers, embellishments, and a Memory Box die. The owner was so nice, she gave me a little discount on my die! By the time I finally got home I was too tired to make anything! I needed a nice long nap.
Once I finally rested, I started on my Mother's Day cards and colored up a whole bunch of images. I never got around to making any cards because I got sidetracked with a project. I decided to make an updated Flourishes chart now that they have added more color combinations to the Copics that they sell at their store. When I first started buying Copics I used their color combinations as a guide. In the last two years they have expanded their collection and it is twice the size now. The ladies at Flourishes thought long and hard and came up with some really great color combinations that work well with their stamps. If you haven't checked them out, they have some nice tutorials on their blog like this one. The majority of their stamp images are floral and classic in style and the names of the collections really compliment that theme. I don't have every single color that they sell so you will notice some of the circles or boxes are left uncolored. As always, I hope these charts help you with choosing color combos to use or which Copics to invest in. Sometimes it is nice to see what the end result could look like before you buy.
