I’ve always said, “I’m a gardener first, paper artist second!” For me, it’s not just creating flowers, but flowers that resemble those grown in our gardens or given in bouquets. I’ve been doing FaceBook Live Tutorials, not only how I assemble the dies I create, but showing how simple it is to color and shade the petals (and leaves) to make people do a double-take that these flowers are actually made of paper.
Here’s a List of Copic Markers that I used on the projects I did this past week. If you missed the video, it does stay up on my FaceBook paper–Susan’s Garden Club.
Y19 & Y38
R89 & R59
V09 & V15
Y09, YR15, & Y38
Distress Ink/Forest Moss around the edges
PanPastel/Bright Yellow Green to accentuate the stem line
PanPastel/Diarylide Yellow for the centers only, use Soft Finish White cardstock
E19 & R59
Y19 and shaded the centers with R59
Oak Leaves: E19, YR14, & YR27
Maple Leaves: R37, YR09, YG95, U19
Birch Leaves: Y19 & YG95

I hope that answers your questions on what I used–have fun creating beautiful Autumn bouquets!
