Welcome! I'm home from the Grand Rapids Copic Certification classes, where I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Copic fans as well as some blog readers--a quick wave to you! I'm headed out tomorrow to Phoenix for my last business trip of the year. Winter is on the way to the U.P. of Michigan; it was definitely colder than it was when we left. Today's card with the new JustRite Song Bird Background stamp is anything but reflective of my chilly surroundings, however. (Blue skies and blooming flowers? Not here!)
I stamped the focal image twice--once in white ink on kraft cardstock, and once in Memento Espresso Truffle ink on X-Press It Blending Card. I colored the image on the X-Press It blending card with the Copic markers shown above and then trimmed around the colored image closely.
I inked the edges of the Kraft cardstock background with some Chai distress ink (PTI) and then stitched the perimeter for a visual frame before tying a bow and attaching the Kraft cardstock layer to a Berry Sorbet (also PTI) card base that had been edged with white craft ink. I used a glue pen to add glitter to the flower centers. The little tag is a Spellbinders die cut from the Back to Basics Tags set.
