Thinking of you

Good morning  all Copic lovers, here is Sandra from Italy how  goes  in your countries?
In Italy these days came the snowFinally came the real winter season because temperatures until now were more  like autumn than  winterReally a situation a bit strange!
So to warm up a bit  our hearts  I decided to make a card for Valentine's Day that will be in a couple of weeks.
I chose the digital stamp "Gardenia" from Aurora WingsThis stamp is really wonderful, beautiful, elegantchic ... Describe it is  almost uselessThe stamp shows itself  all its beauty!
I chose  to color the Gardenias (flower which I love) respecting real colorsso very soft colors.
The flowers of the Gardenia in nature are whitemaximum yellowish or very light green.

So I go with a base tones from  W familyand only then I added a little green shades with the  G20.
ThenI wanted to create a strong contrast with the delicate colors of the flowers and so  I go  with nice bright colors for the hair.
I really like the result, and to embellish and complement the character I applied over the pearls a little of Rock candy Stickles glitter from  Ranger.
The card is made with bazzilpattern Maja Design,  La La LandCraft die and  Ranger sticklesThe sentiment is a stamp Avery Elley.
Thank you for having me followed, I hope you enjoyed my project and I wish you all a romantic Valentine's Day.

Hugs, 
Sandra
