I just got back from a Chicago Copic Color and Ink Workshop weekend late last night; it was great to see my Chicago Copic friends again! I'm headed to Milwaukee on August 23 and hope to see more of you there.
Today's card is made with a beautiful Taylored Expressions stamp set, Teacup Bouquet. I love this image; it makes me think of my great Grandma, for some reason, and I wanted this little stamp set from the first time I saw it.
Shown above are the Copic markers that I used. (Click on any image for a larger version, as always.) I decided to keep the card very simple, not wanting to have any busy patterned papers to compete with my simply colored image; so I looked through my Spellbinders dies until I ran across an old favorite, Labels One, which I paired with some dies that I don't think I have used before, Scalloped Labels One (purple mat), and Majestic Labels One (card base). Dark purple cardstock is is PTI's Royal Velvet, and the image is colored on Copic's X-Press it Blending Card. I tried to put a ribbon on this card, but I just couldn't find a place that it enhanced the image rather than being a distraction; so it's plain Jane card.
That's it for today--have a happy Monday,
