I used this darling image from Stampavie called Fleur Gathering Flowers with Manon available at eP. Because the detail in this image is so dainty, I thought using black ink to stamp it would look to harsh, so I used the Latte Adirondack Dye Pad instead. I must admit I use the Latte stamp pad more than black to stamp my images, and for that very reason... it's much softer. The cardstock used on this project is from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden Collection, it's very soft and pretty so I picked my Copic Markers to match the paper. Once I colored in my base color, and shadowing with the Markers, I used my PrismaColor Pencils to add the little details, and more shadowing. Because the image lines were light to begin with, I use the brown Sakura .05 Archival Ink Pen (Copic Multiliner can be used for this) to sketch in the original lines (not drawing a heavy line, just lightly sketching them back in).

This is so beautiful You did such an awesome job with this. I love this image. I have the same one stamped and all ready to paint, but I inked mine in black. I see what you mean about the softness of the ink you used.
