Bloomin' Beautiful Copics

I used the Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter Pen to outline the Pretty in Pink layer, the Cuttlebugged Whisper White layer, and the flower image layer.

For this SU! Bloomin' Beautiful flower image, I tried another way of creating depth - outlining in different shades, then blending all over with the lightest shade. I am pleased with the effect these three Copic RV shades make - especially after blending all over with the RV10. For the leaves, I colored in one layer of YG67, then highlighted the edges several more layers to darken and give the effect of depth. You can do this with the Colorless Blender too - but I think the Blender gives a more distressed look - and I just wanted some depth and shading but I don't have any other YG colors close to the YG67 - yet! (Another way to achieve the shading and depth perspectives.)

If you haven't broke down and tried the SU! Tafetta Ribbons yet - is there something wrong with you?! LOL, just kidding - but really you must! Okay - you talked me into it - it's time for some Blog Candy - so you can try this Taffeta coming after this one... :)
