Feel Better Soon- Card

Hey Everyone,

Anna here from St@mpAnna Designs.  

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.  :)
