Picture inspiration



This is my card for the Copics challenge 5. I've been a bit more literal with the picture inspiration - I couldn't find papers I liked in my stash for the challenge so did my own background using distress inks wiped over the card in rough stripes. The card is a tri fold. I used buttons for the flower middles. The image was matted onto a plain blue background & of course coloured with copics.
