Purple happens to be one of my favorite colors, so imagine my delight when Sandra and Betsy, owners of Dolce Stamps and Cards, sent me this awesome iris image by My Heart Stamps 4 You. Copic markers are pretty much my go to coloring medium, although I do enjoy watercoloring with reinkers as well. I just love how well the Copic markers blend colors, especially on flowers and this beautiful butterfly also by My Heart Stamps 4 You. I also favor polkadots and stripes in many of my designs, and I liked how well the striped designer paper accented the beautiful irises.
