ICopic challenge with Flowers

     The challenge this week for iCopic is "Flowers".  I've been wanting to try this technique for awhile but just never got around to it until today.  My Grandmother has always loved Irises, so i thought that i  would make this card for her for Mothers Day.  I stamped the Iris and then embossed it in black to get my definite lines to stay in and then added my fine art glitter over the entire flower.  After letting the glitter dry i colored my flower with my copic markers B60,63 and 66 for the top, G20,21 and 28 for the green, then added a little Y00 to the center of the flower.  This is the first time that i've tried this, but it worked like a charm. I'll have to do more experimenting/practicing of coloring on glitter, but i didn't think that it turned out bad. I can't for the life of me remember where i bought this rubber stamp, i think that it was Stampin.com. I've had it for years. The Metal frame is a Spellbinders die and metal sheets. I added bling to the Embossing folder that i embossed with Silver Ranger embossing powder.
