Flowering Flourish Fun

I have been having a lot of fun with this set, Flowering Flourishes.  Two of the images in the set are so big that they really can become the focal image of your card quite easily.  This is actually one of the few stamp sets that I have that I color on directly with markers MOST of the time.  The multiple colors on the image really make it look like it took a lot of work, when it's really quite easy!  The brush tip on our markers are perfect for direct-to-stamp coloring.  Just make sure you start with the lightest color first and work toward the darkest color so you don't get the darker ink on your light-colored markers.  Here I started with the Daffodil Delight, then added the Primrose Petals ink and finally the Old Olive ink.  A trick that I used on this card was to conserve my ribbon.  It looks like the Daffodil ribbon wraps all the way under the Primrose cardstock, but it is actually two short little pieces!  I cut my ribbon too short and by the time I pulled out a strand to ruffle it, it was WAY too short.  I didn't want to waste it so I cut it into two sections and covered it up so you can't even tell!
