Hello readers! My mom has recently shown an interest in wanting to improve her coloring skills. Her medium of choice is Prismacolor pencils, so unfortunately, I am really unable to help her, as I have only a basic knowledge and understanding of Copic markers. First, I had her subscribe to some of the amazing coloring classes at Kit and Clowder. Alyce's classes are so detailed, and while you WILL spend hours coloring a single image, she will teach you the tips and tricks for beautiful, detailed pieces and I guarantee that you will see results! Second, I had to find some beautiful images that I knew my mother would WANT to color. So, I purchased a few beautiful digital stamps from Powerpoppy. Marcella's images are exactly what my mom would draw (if she could draw), but she gets giddy at the prospect of just being able to color them.
For my card today, I have used one of the beautiful images I originally purchased for my mother from Powerpoppy called "Bring Home Some Sunflowers" combined with the multi-layering word "fall" from Honey Bee Stamps.
A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of woodgrain paper and adhered it directly to the card base. Using the Watercolor Stripes Cover die by Altenew, I created the frame from white cardstock. I placed a small scalloped piece of vellum behind the bouquet of flowers. I printed the digital image out onto 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock and colored it using Copic markers. Using the "fall" dies from Honey Bee Stamps, I die cut the bottom layer from gold glitter paper, the middle layer from white cardstock and the top (thinnest) layer from cherry cardstock. I adhered all there layers together using a Lawn Fawn glue tube and adhered the entire sentiment to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I added a few bronze rhinestones randomly to the card. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the bouquet for added sparkle.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
