Today I am going to share with you a card I made. This sort-of just fell into place. :)
I hope you like it.
My boss was away at my "other" job and I took some stamps and my copics to work with me. I brought them with me for 3 days and finally on Friday I actually colored a little bit. I find coloring a little therapeutic, as I am sure many of you do too.
Here is how I made the card. The card measures approximatly 3 1/2 wide x 5 inches high. This image is from one of my most favorite companies: Whipper Snapper Designs. The stamp is called "Sunflower Pitcher". I stamped the image on white cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.
The colors of Copic markers I used are:
cool grey: C1, C3 & C5
Yellow: Y32, Y35, & Y38
Brown: E01, E13, E19
Green: YG03, YG06, YG09
Purple: BV00, BV01, BV04
and I also used Colorless Blender when needed.
After the image was colored, I cut it out with a tiny white border all around.
For the card itself: I stamped with Hero Arts "Friend Definition" background stamp. Inked it up with my Pool Party Ink pad by Stampin Up. Stamped off and then stamped on my card for a muted look. Took some pattern paper along the left side with a tiny strip of green card stock to give it more of a FINISH look. I used my corner chomper by WRMK and corner rounded the corners on the right side of the card. I softened up the card a little with some yellow ink around the edges of the card with a sponge. Next, I stamped the Sentiment "Feel Better Soon" from Stampin' Up Hostess Set called Express Yourself on scrap white paper and cut out to look like a pennant. I inked the edges with yellow ink. Glued down the sentiment to the card about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom of the card. I laced the button with some twine, tied in a bow and then adhered the button down with glue dot. Put some pop dots on the image and adhered above the sentiment.After I finished the card, I felt like it needed a little something else. So I took my Clear Wink of Stella, Glitter pen by Zig and went over the center of the sunflowers to add a little bling. I am not sure you can see it in the picture but in real life it is so cute.
Here is a close up of the coloring.
Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you next time on the Blog. :)
