A mothers day card

Hello Ladies, Hope you are well today. I am having a very slow day I just couldn't get my bum in to gear this morning and usually the way it goes is if I don't get up and sorted straight away I just seem to take ages to do anything for the rest of the day. Including card making lol. Any hoo I have made this card using an image from In Style stamps they are soooo cool. I followed the sketch from Our creative Corner this week which is shown below. 


I used some digital papers for this card - you can find them HERE. The image was coloured with copics, i have been struggeling with using the blacks if ind they always seem to look more like I have watercoloured them after i go over with the lightest colour rather than looking vibrant. If anyone has any tips for colouring with blacks they would be most appreciated I have C3,C5,C7, W3, W5 and W7. 


The sentiment is computer generated and mounted on black paper. I have used black raffia lace which I bought from Quixotic paperie, they are the cheapest around for this (that I have found anyway). The piece of card that the image is mounted on to using foam pads was covered using a purple ink pad, I then whent over the edges of it with black ink to make it match the papers. 
I have decorated the inside to match. 

Copics used; 
Blacks - C3, C5, C7
Reds - R59,R46
Hair - E29, E37, E35 
Skin - E00, E21
Purples - BV08, BV17, BV00, BV02
Earings - Y23
