I just love springtime! Flowers begin to bloom, trees begin to have leaves, the birds singing, the fresh air! My card today is made with a stamp set from Altenew, Magnolias For Her.
I had seen some other crafters use colored pencils over their Copic markers and decided to give it a try. I put the base coat on the flower with my Copics and did a little bit of the shading with my Copics. I then added more details using my Prismacolor Premier pencils. I really liked the effect it gave to the flowers.
A close up of the Magnolias…
I stamped the image using a light colored ink so that I wouldn’t have the heavy black outlines. By using my Copics with the pencils, the lines from the stamp almost disappeared.
I used a new stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for the birthday sentiment. I stamped it using Versa Mark Ink and then used some silver embossing powder from Gina K. I really liked the embossing powder.
Some droplets from Pretty Pink Posh give the appearance of some rain drops. I layered the stamped image on card stock and then added some fun foam to the back to pop the panel up.
One final look…
Thanks for stopping by!
