Today I have three cards for you. I did lots of Copic colouring.
This card was made using a digi image I downloaded from PowerPoppy.
to enter their January Challenge and it needed to be one of their winter stamps
or digitals. Love colouring these, with the lines and shadows it makes it an
easy to colour image.
I used pinks yellows and greens for this set. I was going to leave it one layer but had
just taken delivery of the oval die seen here which comes in two sizes plus a smaller
circle with petals in it. I didnt press out the die cut half circles, I wanted to leave them in
so the image off cuts didnt show through.
I fussy cut the bottom half of the image asI wanted it to look like the flowers
are flowing over the frame. I used a piece of pattern paper where its white with
glossy white indented circles. It doesn't show very well here but looks so elegant
and perfect with the flowers and gold die cut. Finished off with my favourite 'love you'
sentiment from Technique Tuesday.
This is another new to me image drawn by Mo. I love her images
and find it very difficult to stop myself purchasing but as she has been
doing for a while when she first releases a new image it is 50% off for 24 hours.
So at $2 US thats a real bargain and one I cant ignore. If you are new
me if you end up addicted to her images like I am. By the way if you aren't keen
on using digital a lot of her images are available as stamps through Penny Black
(not all but a lot of them), of course more expensive but for stamps a very good price.
Back to my card, I decided I didnt want my bride in white so I used my
Copic Pearl White E41 for her dress and felt this worked perfectly with
her vintage look. I did a very light coat for her veil and a few layers for the dress.
I used dusky pink colours for the flowers and trim on her dress. A dull yellow
for the stone seat she sits on.
Lots of Wink of stella in the veil and flowers but
not very visible in the close up so you will just have to trust me on that.
I bought some cheap (yes I am still buying some washi tapes) at Kmart but at 4 rolls
for $4AUS it was a bargain. They were all tapes with foil gold this one being very thin
and gold hearts, perfect for the occasion. I then added the coloured image but with dimensional
foam tape so it sat just slightly higher and finished off with gold sequins and 'with love' die cut sentiment from Penny black.
My last card is with a stamp from penny Black. Love this cat and he's cheeky face.
First time used thought I have had it in my NBUS pile for a long time.
After colouring with Copics and making him a bit of a ginger and my birds
come from my fantasy garden remember where everything is rainbow coloured.
I had finished colouring and added the sentiment and then went to add to the card front
and realised I needed the tree to go a bit higher, I had finished colouring just above the birds
and it looked silly. I was going to get the Copics out but then thought of the leaves I have used
here. They were already coloured and cut out in my box of pre coloured flowers and were
The bird looks like he has flown out of the leaves and just spotted the cat. Rather than
a solid sky and clouds I decided to just do the Copic spot technique around the birds and the
cat and finished off with a few clear sequins.
All finished and for those of you who are perfectionists I don't want you looking at the bottom
right of the card and be thinking, 'mmmm she didn't take the colouring low enough' because
I will fix it.......maybe!!!!
