I decided to try something totally out of my comfort zone. No line coloring with my Copics in a monochromatic color scheme. Yikes!! So here is the end result.
I started with a large piece of X-Press Blending cardstock. I stamped the Mama Elephant Botanic Thanks in a Copic safe light tan ink onto the X-press It cardstock. I then pulled out my selection of Copic markers. For all of the flowers I used markers in the E5 series. All of them from E50 to E59. I just varied which ones I used on a particular flower and how much I used. I was worried the leaves would get lost so I used W markers to color all the large leaves.
I must say that I am extremely pleased with the results! It did take me a little longer to color than anticipated but I think that was due to determining where flowers and leaves began/ended. Now, what to do with this lovely?? I wanted to keep it simple so the flowers would take the centerpiece. I used a new edge die from Lawn Fawn. Oh so pretty yet simple! I backed the white piece with foam tape and mounted it on to the brown patterned paper and then on to a brown card base. The finished dimensions of the card are 6" by 4 5/8". Here is a side view. I was hoping to show the sparkle!
For a few final finishing touches I colored over all of the gray leaves with some Wink of Stella. I also added some Nuvo drops in Copper Penny and Dark Walnut. Don't forget to check out the 7 Kids Craft store!
I hope you have enjoyed my project today!
