Lily Dreaming Beauty

I love the dramatic colors on this card! The lilies are colored with Copics to match the ones in the image! I hadn't used black ink for distressing before and really like how it worked on this. I also used a black Sakura gelly pen to give the flourishes some shine. Lots of texture on this one!
