Hello crafty friends! Today I am giving my Copic markers something to do again – I haven’t used them much this year, and they demanded attention.
I started by stamping a scene with stamps by Purple Onion Designs – as always, my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig helped me to line up my rubber stamps and thanks to some masking, I was able to create the illusion of depth with a foreground and background.
I kept my coloring very simple – yes, that is really very simple. I used about three shades of the same color for each subject, so there’s no high contrast coloring this time or anything fancy. I’m simply blending from the darkest to the lightest color and made sure to leave enough space for the highlights to give my critters and the trees enough dimension.
After I was done, I die cut the panel from the piece of Copic friendly paper. I wanted to set it off against the otherwise white card base, so I stamped the card base with a background stamp by My Favorite Things and a pale neutral ink. Then I cut a piece of vellum with a die by Wplus9 to mute the background even more and make my front panel pop.
Lastly, I went through my stash of Pretty Pink Posh sequins and found some to match the colors I used on this card. Thanks to Glossy Accents and the fine tip applicator, they are easy and fast to adhere.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed this project! This card goes off to Simon Says Stamp “Cute and Cuddly”.
