First Iris

Well at last our Bearded Irises are starting to bloom and they are a different shade of purple this year!
So I felt inspired to make an Iris card as I do each year, although it's about a month and a half late this year.

I stamped the Altenew Enchanted Iris multiple times, with a bit of masking and then coloured with Copic Markers. I'm definitely a novice when it comes to Copics, but I do enjoy using them and will keep on trying to learn.  The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson.

I'd just finished mounting the stamped panel on the black card base and as I was smoothing it out I left a black smudge mark from my finger - ughhhh!!!! I bet you can guess where it is! The bees add a bit of interest though, although I wouldn't have placed it there:)

I'm entering this in the Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge, which is with Altenew this month.

And here is the real Iris peeking through..

I'm intrigued by the shape! I hope they all fully bloom.


  1. Gorgeous flower & card Jenny!

  2. How fascinating that the iris's have changed colour this year. Love your card, and the bees do add to it, even if not placed there by choice initially.

  3. Beautiful card! This set is on my wish list!
